EV Chargers for Retail Automotive Lots
More drivers in the United States want electric vehicles (EVs). Will your dealership be ready to sell them?
In the first four months of 2021, EV registrations nearly doubled year-over-year, according to data from Experian. A growing number of consumers want to buy their first electric vehicle. And EV chargers for retail automotive lots can attract them to your dealership.
But many who are interested in EVs don’t know enough about them to commit to buying one. Even in California, a state at the forefront of EV adoption, consumer awareness lags. A study from the University of California–Davis Institute of Transportation found that despite the availability of approximately 40 models of electric vehicles, many California consumers could not name one.
Ultimately, your dealership can find opportunity in this barrier. Having on-site chargers can help your sales staff educate first-time EV buyers on EV ownership and persuade other EV drivers to buy again—from you.
And dealerships that choose the Future Energy solution for electric vehicle chargers not only acquire cutting-edge ChargePoint hardware but also a data-driven charging environment. Educate your customers on the benefits of EV ownership to generate more sales and maximize value from your on-site EV infrastructure.
Data capture from the environment enables better power and inventory management. This can help your dealership run as a highly cost- and resource-efficient EV retail and service operation.
Educating Buyers with Commercial EV Chargers
Electric charging stations on your retail lots can provide an anchor point for your salespeople interacting with customers browsing outside. First-time EV buyers will have lots of questions. And a tangible demonstration with an electric vehicle charging station can help address them.
Developing a Sales Strategy around EV Charging Stations
By 2040, nearly every new car sold globally will be electric, according to the investment bank UBS. Automobile companies worldwide are making the transition to electric vehicles.
