Hertz, BP Partner on Electric-Vehicle Charging Stations

Car-rental company Hertz Global Holdings and energy firm BP PLC said they signed a deal to develop and manage a network of electric-vehicle charging stations across North America.

BP Pulse, which is BP’s EV charging business, would power and manage Hertz’s charging infrastructure under the memorandum of understanding, the companies said. The charging infrastructure will be open to taxi and ride-sharing drivers, as well as the general public, the companies said.
