Car dealers play a very important role.
It is in dealerships that people make their desire to buy or rent a car a reality. Conveying the idea of cutting edge and progress is crucial for dealers. Charging stations also attract electric car owners, who may be evaluating new models available in the facility while their EVs are being charged.
Attract new potential customers.
A customer who owns an electric car will certainly prefer a facility that offers charging. For most of them, having a charging point in car dealers shops means increasing the loyality to that brand.
There are maps and sites that list the charging points in the area; these portals are a point of reference for owners of electric vehicles, so, once the charging station has been installed, it is very important to be present with your business so that you can be visible and traceable immediately. Signaling your own charging station is free and fast.
It will then be useful to include, on your website, this service in the list of services available at your facility.
The complete recharge of a medium-sized electric car involves an expenditure of about 10 € of electricity and requires about 5 hours of time (considering a slow recharge at 7 kW). With a full recharge it is possible to do about 250-300 km.
In the case of accommodation facilities, this autonomy is fully able to cover the daily movements of tourists, who will probably do partial recharges every night because it is unlikely that they will consume the whole battery every day doing 250-300 km (so it is reasonable to expect a daily cost per electric car of about 5/10 €).
In the case of restaurants, the recharge time will never be obviously 5 hours, but customers will stay on the charge for the time of lunch or dinner: a recharge of 2 hours at 7 kW allows to recharge about 50/100 km with an energy cost of about 5 €.
