Electric vehicles grew 70% in America in 2016 and are set to make up 58% of the light vehicle market in the States by 2030. 

Hotel groups have been quick to spot this trend according to JLL. Marriotts, Hilton and Starwood are all installing charging stations to cater for this new lucrative driver. 

And of course it makes complete commercial sense. 

It's a tick in the green box, hotels can attract high value customers often away from the boutiques, it's a nod in the direction of brand loyalty and all for a modestly low infrastructure investment.
