In the United States, the electric vehicle (EV) market is booming, growing nearly 40% year-over-year since 2017. According to Veloz, there are now over 2 million EVs in the United States! As a business owner, you may be wondering how you can tap into this market. Electric vehicle charging stations are your answer. Here are three ways that installing EV charging stations can help you attract customers at your business.

1. Attract Electric Vehicle Drivers

When you install electric vehicle charging stations at your store or business, you’ll attract EV drivers. That’s because drivers look for businesses where they can charge their vehicles while shopping or running other errands. In some cases, this can actually lead to them spending more time at your business in order to give their cars time to charge up! A longer stay time means your customer will spend more and return to your business next time.

2. Put Your Business On the Map

Installing electric vehicle charging stations at your business can also help put your location on the map. Networked charging stations such as the SemaConnect Series 8 are visible on station locators and Google Maps to help EV drivers find nearby charging stations. Drivers searching for “EV charging stations near me” will find your location and get directions to your business! With increased visibility to EV drivers and potential drivers, you gain name recognition and get a leg up on the competition.

3. Special EV Promotions

Finally, EV stations can be a new way to offer special deals to EV drivers. Whether you want to offer free EV charging as part of a loyalty program or introduce your stations during a large event or grand opening, your smart charging stations are an effective way to create repeat customers.

Whether you’re offering a promotion or just putting your business on the EV map, electric vehicle charging stations are an effective way to help you win more repeat customers. Ready to get started? Request your quote today!
