InstaVolt has announced that it has installed a record number of rapid chargers in the first quarter of 2024.

The company installed 128 electric vehicle chargers at 44 sites across the country from January to March.

This includes the launch of InstaVolt’s latest superhub, which opened last month at the iconic Syon Park in West London. Now the largest hub of its kind in the borough with 14 chargers offering speeds of up to 160kW, it is ideal for commuters and local drivers alike.

Last week, Zapmap shared new figures showing that the overall rate of charge point installation across all charge point operators has increased by 35% compared with the average across 2023 - and as of the end of March, there are now 59,590 charging devices installed in total.

InstaVolt and Zapmap share a live data partnership meaning that users of the Zapmap app and web map are able to view the live status and availability of all of its charge points. 

“Delivering reliable, nationwide EV charging is our goal at InstaVolt. As a team, we’re thrilled to be able to announce we’ve gone above and beyond our installation targets for this first quarter, we’re installing faster than any other charge point operator and will continue to push ourselves,” said Simon Smith, Chief Commercial Officer at InstaVolt.

“We’ve also entered a record number of chargers into lease, which will now enter the construction phase to ensure we maintain our rapid rate of growth. This delivery is essential to improving charging infrastructure across the country, bringing continued confidence to the sector and to those who are making the switch to a more sustainable and greener future by choosing to drive an EV.”

InstaVolt has plans in place to install 11,000 chargers in the UK and Ireland, 5,000 across Spain and Portugal, and over 300 in Iceland. With a pipeline of more than 16,000 chargers the Hampshire based company has employed staff in all regions to fulfil its goal to be the largest CPO in Europe.
