InstaVolt has announced that 72 rapid charge points were installed in March, a new record for the network.
Once all final checks and power supply connections have been completed in the next few weeks, the total number of units on the rapid-only network will be more than 310 points across the UK.
Installations have been completed at sites such as petrol stations, Starbucks branches, supermarkets, and retail parks. In March, the new charge points were added from Dorset to Cumbria.
The dual-header units feature CCS and CHAdeMO connectors, can charge at up to 50 kW, and are accessed with a contactless credit or debit card – with no registration required.
Tim Payne, CEO of InstaVolt, said: “March has been an incredibly busy time for us, as we continue to build our network and 72 chargers in one month represents a new company record.
“It quite possibly represents the highest number of rapid chargers install by an operator in a single month, within the UK.”
