Hilton Hotels and Tesla have signed an expanded agreement to install up to 20,000 Tesla Universal Wall Connectors at 2,000 hotels in the US, Canada, and Mexico. This will make Hilton’s planned electric vehicle charging network the largest of any hospitality company.
Each participating hotel will have at least six chargers. Hilton hopes that this will make the hotelier the first choice for travelers with electric vehicles. Tesla recently launched its Universal Wall Connector. The device is designed to charge any North American vehicle model, which expands Tesla’s efforts to make charging accessible to all EVs.
Travelers are looking for EV chargers when they book travel. Searches on Hilton.com for hotels with charging capability had the fastest volume of growth to-date (jumping from fourth to second highest in converting these searches to stays).
Anthony’s Take: I don’t have an electric vehicle, but I have heard friends lament the lack of charging options while traveling. This is a great step to provide EV owners with what they need while they’re on the road.
