Gridserve – Electric Highway
The first Electric Forecourt has opened in Essex! It is the first of its kind and there are over 100 set to follow in the next 5 years. The Electric Forecourt can charge 36 Electric Vehicles at the same time with high power chargers (350 kW). Drivers can add up to 200 miles of range in only 20 minutes and there’s a WH Smiths & Costa to keep them entertained while they wait.
The company’s 1 billion pound UK-wide programme aims to make EV driving an enjoyable, ultra-convenient and stress-free experience. These Electric Forecourts are a huge breakthrough in supporting a greener and Electric Vehicle focused future. See the 100% Electric Vehicles we have available here!
The main reason drivers are hesitant to switch to Electric is charging points are not accessible enough. These Electric Forecourts are set to change the charging game and make charging your Electric Vehicle as easy as filling up with petrol or diesel.
The best part? It’s all pretty great but the Electric Forecourt provides low cost, net zero carbon energy to every vehicle using their charger. The energy is produced by the solar power canopies above the chargers, and a network of hybrid solar farms.
