The Engenie EV charging network has a simple focus – pay-as-you-go rapid charging. The network’s points are either available at a set price per kWh, or with a flat fee. The units are operated with either with contactless credit or debit card, or Apple Pay.
No membership is required, with drivers using contactless payment on a pay-as-you-go basis, though an app is being developed for release at a later date.

To discover how much it will cost to charge an EV from an Engenie charge point, head to Zap-Map’s Public Charging Calculator. This allows you to select any new or used plug-in vehicle, and tailor elements – such as electricity cost and charge required – for personalised results.
Engenie network access
Access to the Engenie network is made via a contactless credit or debit card, or via Apple Pay. Payment is taken from the account linked to the card after the charge.
Finding Engenie points on Zap-Map
All Engenie points can be found on Zap-Map by using the network filter. This can be used on the desktop and mobile apps, and displays only those points operated by Engenie.
Charging types and speeds can be filtered too, showing only those points that are compatible with users’ cars.
Accessing points on other networks
Since Engenie points are accessed using a standard debit or credit card, or via Apple Pay, there is no cross-network access other than on those units that also accept contactless payments. To use another network’s points, drivers must first follow the same processes as any other customer.
Engenie is a British company that is rolling out a network of rapid charge points across the country, located at strategically important locations such as city centres and near major trunk roads.
