As part of the city’s goal of attaining zero vehicular emissions before 2050, the Hong Kong Roadmap on Popularisation of Electric Vehicles was set up to encourage the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) and their associated supporting facilities in the SAR. As of the end of June 2022, there are 5,046 EV chargers for public use.
Shell Hong Kong has signed a strategic partnership with Hyundai Hong Kong to offer priority use of dedicated charging points as well as charging promotions for Hyundai owners, enhancing their charging experiences.
Emily Leung, general manager of mobility of Shell Hong Kong said the company is committed to improving the experience of drivers. In recent years, we have expanded the EV charging network in a proactive manner to help Hong Kong achieve the goal of low-carbon transportation.
“We are thrilled to become a strategic partner with Hyundai. Looking ahead, we will leverage the advantages of both parties to encourage wider adoption of EVs and create a seamless charging experience for EV drivers.”
Hyundai will become the first car brand partner for Shell Recharge to expand and promote Shell Recharge network. Shell plans to provide more than 300 Shell Recharge charging points across Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories in the near term.
Hyundai Hong Kong managing director, Kevin Lau says the partnership will allow the group to utilise Shell’s comprehensive EV charging network to speed up the transition to EVs among Hong Kong people for green transportation.
Shell and Hyundai work together to bring along exclusive discounts to EV owners. Customers who have purchased the original Hyundai electric car maintenance service package will be rewarded with Shell Recharge charging credit to enrich their EV adventures. Hyundai owners can redeem the charging credits with ease via registration at Shell Recharge website or APP (https://go.shell.com/iOS or https://go.shell.com/GooglePlay).
