Rapid charging network InstaVolt has launched its latest charge points, capable of delivering 120 kW DC for customers.
The new BYD units will be deployed across all future installations nationwide, including locations such as Costa Coffee and McDonalds. It’s the first time BYD’s charging hardware has been imported into Europe by a charging network.
Capable of delivering 100 miles of range in just 15 minutes for vehicles able to take 120+ kW, the charge points will add to what is already a well respected network – regularly scoring highly in Zap-Map surveys.
Looking ahead, InstaVolt aims to install charge points capable of delivering 150 kW and more, with plans for these to start going into the ground within this financial year. All InstaVolt units will continue to be backed by 100% renewable energy.
The new BYD charge points come with two tethered connectors – one CCS and one CHAdeMO, and support two vehicles charging at the same time, boosting availability for drivers.
Adrian Keen, Chief Executive Officer of InstaVolt, said: “Offering new and improved public charging technology across the UK is vital to increase the uptake of EVs. Being able to deliver even quicker charging speeds, while also maintaining excellent reliability is what drives InstaVolt forward.
“We’re incredibly pleased to be the first charging network to install BYD public chargers in the UK. Delivering this new and improved technology across locations such as McDonald’s and Costa will mean that any EV driver passing through these locations can speedily charge their car.”
