Ikea to add electric-vehicle charging stations

Posted: June 28, 2013

Ikea is enlarging its sustainability footprint in the region with plans to add a total of six electric vehicle charging stations at its home-furnishing stores in South Philadelphia and Conshohocken, and its U.S. corporate office, also in Conshohocken.

Through a partnership Ikea already has with ECOtality Inc. in San Francisco, specialists in clean electric transportation and storage technologies, the Swedish retailer will add a total of 24 Blink charging stations to eight U.S. locations beginning in July. Completion is expected by the end of summer, bringing the total number of charging stations at Ikea locations to 55, the company said.
