At this year’s Festival of Speed, bp will showcase how it is leading the electric revolution under our EV charging brand – bp pulse.


The world of mobility is changing rapidly. At bp, this excites us and, at bp pulse, we are embracing this change and are helping our customers to go electric. Our vision with bp pulse is to make mobility effortless, more convenient and more sustainable for everyone.


bp pulse is our commitment to an entirely new way of EV charging – we are leading the way, for charging at home, at work and on the go. bp pulse has been and is critical to the evolution of charging, bringing to our customers the technology to help reduce the time it takes to charge to approximately 10 minutes for a range of 100 miles. We know that charging electric vehicles is different from refuelling other vehicles, but we believe EV charging should be fast, convenient and reliable, without you having to worry about how, where, or when you will charge.


That’s why, with bp pulse, we are investing heavily to build the largest ultra-fast and rapid electric vehicle charging networks in the UK, Germany and beyond. We are creating a seamless EV experience, making the possibilities of EV driving more accessible for all, from everyday driving needs to electrifying fleets worldwide. Our aim is to help everyone spend less time worrying about charging and more time thinking about their journey.
