Hilton Partners with Tesla to Install EV Chargers

Tesla and Hilton are reaming up to install 20,000 electric vehicle charging stations across 2,000 Hilton hotels in U.S., Mexico and Canada beginning next year.

The move makes sense for both companies. For Tesla, this is a way to increase mass adoption of EV by offering more convenient charging locations across North America. The company’s Universal Wall Connector can charge any North American vehicle model, not just Teslas. For Hilton on the other hand, this is another benefit they can offer leisure and business travelers.

Up to 20,000 Tesla Universal Wall Connectors are slated to be installed beginning in early 2024. With at least six chargers at each of the selected hotels, Hilton will become the first choice for the dramatically increasing number of travelers who drive electric vehicles.

Hilton says that its vast geographic footprint of hotels alongside roadways and in key urban destinations across North America makes it uniquely suited to provide charging access at scale for travelers on long-haul trips.

Travelers are increasingly looking for EV chargers when they travel as evidenced by the continued growth of searches at Hilton.com for hotels with charging capability. In 2023, the website’s EV charging search attribute had the fastest volume of growth to-date, jumping from fourth to second highest in converting searches to stays.

“A key priority for Tesla Charging is installing low-cost, convenient AC charging anywhere electric vehicles are parked for more than an hour or two,” said Rebecca Tinucci, senior director of charging infrastructure, Tesla. “To ensure electric vehicle adoption at scale, our joint industry goal must be to vastly improve upon the traditional gasoline vehicle ownership experience, not just meet it. Installing infrastructure at popular destinations like Hilton hotels enables EV owners to charge where they park, meaning no unnecessary refueling stops along their journey. We applaud Hilton for their leadership in the space and look forward to continuing to ramp this critical program with other industry leaders.”

  1. I would like some media interview to ask Rebecca Tinucci if these charging stations will follow the air polluting model of the supercharger on I-5 in California, essentially mid-way between LA and SF. People buy electric vehicles for various reasons, one of which is to combat global warming (forget the PC “climate change”), and not to use a station supported by an independent diesel generator.
