Kyiv – Shell in cooperation with DTEK installed the first 50 kW fast electric vehicle (EV) charger at Shell’s forecourt, allowing people to charge their cars on the go. Drivers can now already enjoy the convenience and speed of the new electric charger at Shell petrol station 8008 on the 342th km of the Kyiv-Odesa highway to the direction of Kyiv. A further two EV chargers will be added at Shell forecourts over the coming days in Kyiv (Kyiv-Kharkiv highway) and Rivne (Kyiv-Lviv highway) regions.
By introducing fast EV chargers at its forecourts, Shell is widening its service portfolio with electric mobility solution for Ukrainian customers. This is in line with Shell’s global strategy to meet growing demand for transport in a lower carbon world. Shell expects to expand its offering of EV chargers on its retail sites across Ukraine over the coming years, aligning with growing customers’ demands.
