Based on analysis of the more than 1.6 million charging sessions tracked by Zap-Map over the second quarter of 2022, England’s most popular public Electric Vehicle (EV) charging locations have been revealed. You can find the whole article here. But spoilers, we are Leading the Charge, literally!
We have been ranked top two in the most popular EV charging points in England with our sites Moto Rugby and Moto Exeter – both of which has seen an investment into EV charging and the installation of our Super Hubs, which are definitely SUPER.
Here are some extracts from the article:
Rank 1: GRIDSERVE Electric Super Hub at Moto Rugby
Moto opened its Rugby site in April last year, complete with a flagship, GRIDSERVE Electric Super Hub just off the M6. It has 12 high-power charging devices, which have both CCS and CHAdeMO connectors. Accepting contactless payments and capable of charging at up to 350 kW, these chargers can add around 100 miles in 10 minutes.
Rank 2: GRIDSERVE Electric Super Hub at Moto Exeter
This Electric Super Hub at Moto’s Exeter site has 17 charging devices, with something for everyone. Indeed, the hub boasts two fast Type 2 AC chargers, three medium-power, and twelve 350 kW-capable devices with CCS and CHAdeMO connectors. Opened on 31 March, on a popular holiday route, GRIDSERVE’s Exeter Super Hub is off to a flying start in its first three months of operation with a 240% increase in EV traffic on site.
We’re proud to be leading the EV revolution on the UK motorway network, as we strive to encourage more sustainable driving by making it easier for EV drivers to recharge regardless of where they’re going, or where they’re coming from. EV accessibility and reliability is something Moto wants to excel in and we are committed to this with our nationwide rollout along with our partner, GRIDSERVE Electric Highway.
Ken McMeikan, CEO at Moto Hospitality said: “I am delighted to see our Moto sites at Rugby and Exeter occupying the top two spots, it’s a real vote of confidence from motorists in both our charging offer and our fantastic facilities.
“As the largest UK Motorway Services Operator, we are continuing our mission to transform the UK’s rest stop experience. Reducing range anxiety by revolutionising the EV charging experience for motorists on motorways is at the heart of our plans.
“Across all our sites, up and down the UK, we’re improving the size, efficiency and capability of our EV charging offer and now have eight Super Hubs open. We also expect to complete super hub installation at half of our Motorway Services Areas over the coming months and are on track to deliver above and beyond the government target of a minimum of six rapid chargers at each motorway site by 2023, all of which makes it easier for our customers to make the switch to sustainable driving.”
