Subway® Pilots Fast EV Charging Stations
Subway® will pilot Subway Oasis charging parks at select, new, or newly remodeled restaurants across the U.S. starting in 2023.
Subway Oasis will feature charging canopies with multiple ports, picnic tables, Wi-Fi, restrooms, green space, and playgrounds.
The restaurant company is partnering with BenZ EV Solutions on the multi-year rollout. Subway will also work with franchisees of both traditional and non-traditional locations, to identify sites for both smaller-format EV charging stations as well as Subway EV Charging Oasis parks.
"We're constantly exploring new ways to innovate and exceed our guests' expectations for a high-quality, convenient experience," said Mike Kappitt, Chief Operating and Insights Officer of Subway in a statement. "Our partnership with GenZ EV Solutions is a win for our guests, our franchisees and our planet, creating a dedicated space for drivers to charge their vehicle while enjoying their favorite Subway sandwich."
