Milestone reached by InstaVolt network


InstaVolt has installed its 200th EV charge point, a year after having put its first unit in the ground.

The milestone figure was reached at Locks Heath Shopping Village in Hampshire, with a number of shops and cafes around for drivers to visit while their EV is charging.

The rapid charge specialists have installed double header units – CCS and CHAdeMO – nationwide, with the fast roll-out only he beginning of the network’s growth.

Exclusively accessible via contactless bank card, the units are often installed at petrol station forecourts, retail centres, and leisure facilities.

Having also performed extremely well in Zap-Map’s recent driver survey, InstaVolt CEO Tim Payne said: “At a time when the government is under pressure to ban the sales of new petrol and diesel cars by 2032, bringing forward its original date by eight years, the need for reliable public charging infrastructure is greater than ever.

“Drivers will only feel ready to transition to EV’s when they have confidence in the public charging infrastructure. This means providing a network with the highest level of reliability and customer service.

“The private sector is perfectly aligned with customer needs in this regard, as I believe the most reliable and accessible network will quickly become the most popular with drivers. We’re proud that drivers have recognised our efforts in the latest Zap-map survey.”
