July 12, 2019—BMW announced this week it will finish a project started in 2017, reported CNET.

In April 2017, BMW first announced a partnership with the U.S. National Park Service that would see several dozen EV chargers installed at or adjacent to various national parks, in order to make the parks more accessible to EV owners who may not have all the range in the world. The goal wasn't just to add more chargers, but to give EV owners the chance to get out and enjoy nature without any range anxiety. The first charger to be established as part of this partnership went online in 2017 at the Thomas Edison National Historical Park in New Jersey.

BMW announced this week that it will finish donating 100 electric vehicle chargers in national parks nationwide this month. More than 90 have already been installed, but the remainder should be up and running by the end of July.
