White Plains, New York – The Element hotel in Lexington, Massachusetts has become the first in the hotel chain to install an electric vehicle charging station for guests and travellers in the area.

The ChargePoint Networked Charging Station was installed through a partnership with Carbon Day Automotive. Travellers will be able to locate the station and even determine whether it is currently occupied by using Google maps.

Element Hotels also provide preferred parking for drivers of hybrid or electric cars, and offers bicycles for guests to borrow.

Element and Carbon Day will share the cost for the charging station, which uses a universal plug-in for all kinds of electric vehicles, including cars, buses, Segway scooters and bikes.
