Circle K has achieved a significant milestone in Sweden with the opening of its 100th location in the country. As part of its commitment to sustainability, one-third of these locations now provide charging facilities for electric vehicles (EV), stated Circle K Sweden and Mynewsdesk.
In the past year alone, Circle K has added 160 new charging points for public use, bringing the total number of charging points in its nationwide network to over 465. This expansion allows more EV owners to conveniently charge their vehicles, promoting the adoption of cleaner transportation alternatives.
The growing demand for EV charging infrastructure has prompted Circle K to further invest in expanding its network. Currently, an additional 112 charging points are completely ready - but waiting to be connected to the power grid.
“In parallel with the high pace of the rollout, we also put a lot of focus on everything else related to charging - such as making the charging experience really smooth,” said Jenni Alterling, Senior Manager of E-mobility at Circle K.
In addition to the 112 charging points that are ready for grid connection, another seven stations are being built, which will host 42 more charging points.
"Of course, it is frustrating that we build quickly, but then have to wait for a grid connection. We've pointed this out for many years, but we're building at triple the rate anyway, and we'll continue to do so. With this rate of expansion, we will reach 1000 charging points in 2026," Alterling concludes.
With the opening of its 100th location and the continuous expansion of its EV charging network, Circle K is demonstrating its commitment to sustainable practices and providing innovative solutions to meet the evolving needs of its customers.
