POD Point to install EV charge points at APCOA car parks


POD Point has partnered with APCOA Parking to set up EV charge points at the company’s car parks. The move will see units installed across the country with APCOA having parking sites in locations such as town centres, train stations, airports, shopping centres, and hotels.

There are already 15 charging units installed at two key APCOA locations – Heathrow Airport and Birmingham’s Broadway Plaza – with the points available to all visitors to use.

Erik Fairbairn, CEO of POD Point, said: “This partnership agreement has the potential to be a game changer for the EV industry in the UK, and not only in volume.

“Working with APCOA means access to EV will be granted to a huge section of the population at various touch points in their daily life as well as putting a measure in place to generate footfall in retail centres and provide added services that encourage customer retention for businesses.

“Our mission is to have a POD Point everywhere people park for an hour or more and today’s announcement means we are a step closer to making that vision a reality.”

Kim Challis, APCOA’s Regional Managing Director for UK & Ireland, said: “At APCOA we’re passionate about sustainable travel and the future of electric vehicles. I’m proud to be embarking on this exciting new partnership with POD Point.

“APCOA is the parking provider of choice to hundreds of organisations across the UK and Ireland, and our broad network will open up EV chargers to new motorists and support the wider take-up of electric vehicles.”
