Ikea plugs in four electric vehicle charging stations in Atlanta

Furniture retailer Ikea plugged in four Blink electric vehicle charging stations at its Atlanta, Georgia store as part of its partnership with Car Charging Group Inc.

Car Charging Group is the new owner of the Blink Network and Blink charging stations, and a provider of EV charging services with more than 13,430 charging points in 35 states and three countries.

To charge an EV at Ikea Atlanta, drivers pull into a designated parking spot, tap their Blink InCard (RFID card) to the reader below the screen, plug the charger into the EV, and then shop while the vehicle is charging.

This initiative represents the 11th such U.S. project for Ikea, with installation underway at other locations. In all, installation of units currently planned will bring the number of Blink charging stations available at Ikea locations to 55.
