More than 400 UK forecourts to imminently get EV rapid chargers
Independent forecourt operator Motor Fuel Group (MFG) is imminently rolling out rapid chargers from ChargePoint Services across its 413-strong nationwide network.
The move will see MFG host the 50kW plus rapid chargers at sites nationwide which operate under the BP, Shell, Texaco, JET and Murco fuel brands, with work already beginning on the first installations.
The chargers will become part of ChargePoint Services’s existing GeniePoint Network, run and managed by its GeniePoint Platform.
Jeremy Clarke, MFG’s chief operating officer, said: “The growth of the electric and hybrid vehicle market is an important part of the fuel mix going forward. MFG is determined to be at the forefront of this technology, satisfying this growing demand.”
Alex Bamberg, managing director, ChargePoint Services, added: “Electric vehicle charging is now a critical public service, and we are on target to provide the most reliable, widespread rapid charging facilities across the UK for drivers of electric vehicles, backed up by our excellent, continuous customer care program.”
