Marks & Spencer has partnered with BP Pulse, the electric vehicle (EV) charging arm of energy giant BP, to provide high-speed electric vehicle (EV) charge points to the group’s estate across the UK.

The retailer said it was reshaping the business for "sustainable future growth" with a combination of ultra-fast and rapid charge points being installed during the rollout.

The agreement will see M&S and BP Pulse work together to install an initial 900 electric vehicle charge points in around 70 of M&S’ national stores in the next two years. M&S has more than 960 UK stores in total.

BP plans to invest up to £1bn in UK EV charging infrastructure by 2030.

A total of 15 rapid charge points have already been installed and gone live at the M&S Maidstone Eclipse superstore in Kent and Southgate, London, following successful pilot installations.

Sacha Berendji, director of operations at M&S, said: “At M&S, we’re reshaping the business for sustainable future growth in every sense. EV charging is the latest feature to ensure we have a store estate fit for the future, to help our customers live lower carbon lives.”
