BP PLC said Tuesday that its gas-station brand Aral will grow its number of ultrafast electric-car charging points in Germany by fivefold this year.

The London-based oil-and-gas company said it expects to end the year with 500 ultrafast charging ‎points at more than 120 stations, a faster-than-expected rollout. By the end of February, Aral should operate 100 charging points at 25 stations.
