InstaVolt, has activated a “record” 80 electric vehicle (EV) rapid chargepoints this March, in what the EV charging company says is “its most active month to date.”
The newly installed charges are located throughout the UK covering over 10 different regions; this includes the expansion of InstaVolt’s six-charger site in Bristol as well as the recently expanded Stroud Park rapid charging hub.
“The accelerating expansion of our public charging network across the UK is a huge success for InstaVolt and a testament to the growing demand for EV infrastructure,” said Adrian Keen, CEO at InstaVolt.
“We have made huge strides as a business already this year and we are firmly committed to extending this growth throughout 2023. We’ve also had some significant milestones along the way, including energising our 1,000th charger and the expansion of our flagship rapid charging hub at Stroud Park, Banbury.”
The EV market is continuing to grow at pace as demonstrated by the latest data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) which revealed that 46,626 EVs were purchased in March 2023, representing an 18.5% increase from the same time last year.
SMMT also revealed that the UK has one of the top five attractive EV markets in Europe.
