Norway becomes world’s first to replace all fuel pumps with EV chargers at Circle K station

Circle K at Aleksander Kielland’s place in Oslo changes all fuel pumps with electric chargers and becomes the first station in the world going full electric.

Circle K is part of a network of 16,000 petrol stations internationally, but Circle K at Aleksander Kielland’s place in Oslo is the only one where electric car speed chargers have now taken the place of fuel pumps.

We have never done this before. There are fierce battles over the square meters at fuel stations, and the fuel pumps still deliver the core products and drive most of the traffic to our stations, says Circle Ks Sverre Rosén in a company press release.

But now there is a development in Norway. Fast charging is in high demand and there is a growing customer segment. It is nice to be a pioneer for the whole world in this way, says Rosén
