Following news in November 2023 that Osprey Charging partnered with Supermarket Income REIT to install rapid electric vehicle (EV) charging hubs across the fund’s portfolio of supermarkets, Osprey has opened its latest charging hub at Tesco Extra in Beaumont Leys, Leicester. 

The new hub contains 12 ultra-rapid 300kW charge points, capable of adding up to 100 miles of range in around 15-20 minutes, depending on the EV type and battery capacity.

Osprey Charging has designed its newer charge points to be fully accessible and easy to use, charger hardware is spring-loaded so that it manages the cable weight and means you can use them with one hand.

Thanks to Osprey’s Live Data partnership with Zapmap, users of the Zapmap app and desktop map are able to find live status and availability information of all of Osprey’s charge points, as well as pay for their charging using Zap-Pay, making charging simpler.

“The electric transition is well underway and we’re here to provide a reliable and rapid public charging service for drivers, from Cornwall to the Scottish Highlands,” said Ian Johnston, CEO of Osprey Charging.

“Osprey now has over 1000 charge points installed across the UK, each carefully designed to maximise space, accessibility and availability and made to the latest and highest standards. 

“The new charging hub at Leicester’s Tesco Extra will form a vital part of the re-charging network that will enable the decarbonisation of transport in the UK.”
