Even though we can’t picture your average EV owner as being an avid fan of McDonalds, nevertheless, future Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Volt owners living in Huntington, West Virginia, will have a very good reason to visit the food chain's new store located near the corner of 1st Street and 5th Avenue, as it’s the first restaurant of its kind in the U.S. to have a Level 2 Electric Car Charging Station.
“I wanted to offer this capability to show our customers that this new technology is here when they are ready to take advantage of it,” said Tom Wolf, local owner/operator.
The EV-friendly drive-in replaces the McDonald’s formerly located at 70 Washington Avenue in Huntington, which was the first one of its kind in West Virginia.
“I think it’s very fitting that the first location in West Virginia is making McDonald’s history again, being the first in the U.S. to offer the Level 2 charging stations,” Mr. Wolf concluded.
