29 June 2018, News Wires — BP has said 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.
