By Reuters

Petroleumworld 06 29 2018

BP said on Thursday it would buy UK-based electric vehicle charging company Chargemaster, as it bets on increasing demand for electric cars.

BP, an oil and gas company, did not provide a deal value but said that BP Chargemaster would operate as a wholly-owned unit and Chargemaster employees would continue at BP Chargemaster. ( )

In February, BP said it expects autonomous electric vehicles to become available in the early 2020s and forecast a 100-fold growth in electric vehicles by 2040.
