Wired for Success: Elevating Retail with Supercharged EV Solutions
Electric vehicles (EVs) have become a mainstay on the roads. In 2022, new EV's saw a 60% increase in registrations even though new car registrations, as a whole, were down nearly 20%. There are now 3 million EVs navigating American streets, and are projected to surpass 26 million by 2030.
Due to this growth trajectory, drivers will soon face a dilemma. Despite this surge, the current count of public EV chargers in the country stands at only 160,000, and with a quarter of drivers anticipating the convenience of charging away from home, the numbers need to align.
As charging locations become more prevalent through installation and consumer purchases of EVs, it presents a unique opportunity for retailers to provide an elevated service to help attract and retain customers while also providing additional benefits to the retailer, ranging from tax credits and incentives to additional advertising space to sell to vendors and third-party brands.
Revolutionizing Customer Experience with Added ROI
Retailers are seeing a resurgence of in-store activity. Customers want to visit, proving to online giants that customers like in-store shopping. They enjoy touching and feeling the clothing fabric, smelling perfume samples, and trying on shoes. These are just a few preferred reasons for returning to the in-store buyer experience.
Adding dedicated EV charging spaces to your parking lot is a great way to attract new and returning customers. These charging stations can also be used to display digital advertisements for third-party brands, which can help to increase customer loyalty and enhance customer experiences. Moreover, the IRS provides tax credits for purchasing and installing commercial EV charging stations.
Integrating intelligence at the pump will provide valuable insights into customer behavior, such as which days of the week are peak and non-peak shopping days.
Imagine the benefit of having customer traffic data from your parking lot: retailers can gain insights into customer behavior and optimize their business operations. This improves the customer experience and helps offset the cost of providing it.
