Electric vehicle drivers in the UK are about to get access to even faster charging from one of their favourite networks. InstaVolt is starting to install new ChargePoint Express 250 high-powered chargers, capable of up to 125kW charging, with the first now in the ground in Basingstoke, Hampshire. New stations will follow across the UK throughout the summer.

InstaVolt’s existing network of 50kW rapid charging stations will continue to charge the majority of vehicles on the road at their maximum capacity. However, as new vehicles enter the market with larger batteries and higher speed charging capacities, ChargePoint Express 250 ultra-rapid chargers and software will enable InstaVolt to be amongst the first in the UK to offer drivers charging speeds of up to 125kW.

This has the potential to halve charging time for drivers and can add 125 miles of range in just 15 minutes where the vehicle’s battery can accept such charging rates. The new charging technology is expected to be highly popular with drivers of larger battery EVs just starting to hit the marketing including the Mercedes Benz EQC, Jaguar I-PACE and Audi e-tron which are capable of charging at up to 110kW, 100kW and 150kW respectively.

ChargePoint Express 250 high powered chargers enable power to be shared dynamically between two units, meaning two cars can still charge simultaneously at any dual-station location.

The stations, which can be upgraded to deliver even faster rates of charging as battery technology evolves, use high efficiency power conversion to reduce electricity costs and wasted energy. All deliver electricity from 100% renewable sources.
