ELECTRIC charge points are coming to nine refuelling stations.
So if you run an electric car – an EV or BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle) – you can top up at the fill up.
That’s because Cornwall Garage Group, which owns 18 fuel filling forecourts across England, has announced plans to install rapid electric vehicle chargers.
The company is working with InstaVolt to install and maintain the DC chargers at nine of its sites.
The nine fuel forecourts where you will be able to find a rapid charger – along with petrol or diesel – are:
- Southville Services, Southville, Bristol
- New County Services, Clophill, Bedfordshire
- Putnoe Services, Bedford
- Exton Services, Exeter
- Honicknowle Services, Plymouth
- Bassett Services, Epping, Essex
- Shoreham Services, Shoreham by Sea, West Sussex
- Bedworth Services, Bedworth, Coventry
- Glendale Services, Nuneaton, Warwickshire
David Whistler from Cornwall Garage Group, said:
“The automotive landscape. It’s important to offer provision for drivers of electric cars – as well as motorists using petrol and diesel.”
InstaVolt CEO Tim Payne added:
“We see petrol forecourts as playing a very important role in e-mobility. They are still helping people get back on the road, the only difference is motorists are topping up with electricity instead of petrol or diesel.”
InstaVolt’s rapid DC chargers are subscription free. They operate on a pay-as-you-go basis.
Drivers of an EV simply tap their contactless credit or debit card, charge-up and go.
Users are charged only for the electricity they use on a per-unit basis. There is no connection fee, minimum charge or monthly subscription fee.
