Located at the Best Western Garden Court Aylesbury hotel in Buckinghamshire, the new Ultracharge rapid charger joins other recent installations at Holiday Inn Express London Heathrow Terminal 5, intu Lakeside shopping centre in Essex and Lifton Farm Shop in Devon – in total, Chargemaster says it’s adding around 20 Ultracharge units to the network every month.

Chief executive David Martell said, “Increasing the number of rapid charge points across the UK is an important priority in supporting the uptake of electric vehicles. We are adding new rapid chargers to the POLAR network every week and now have units within five minutes of half of all M25 junctions, with others positioned along the Strategic Road Network and at other popular destinations.”

Chargemaster offers its Ultracharge rapid charger units to site hosts at no cost to them, including installation, with the latest rapid charge points on the Polar network available to Polar Plus members via the subscription service.
