Motor Fuel Group (MFG) has constructed a new dual-fuel station with eight dedicated 150kW electric vehicle (EV) charging bays.
This is alongside eight traditional petrol pumps, with the former petrol station on the site located on the A3 in Putney, south west London, having been demolished.
MFG has also developed 1,500 sq ft of retail space, with the site containing Costa Coffee, Budgens and an Amazon drop box and home delivery location.
“This is an important site for us as we see Putney as the industry-leading blueprint for the future of UK forecourts to achieve a practical transition from fossil fuels to electrically powered vehicles,” said William Bannister, CEO, MFG.
The development is part of MFG’s £400 million EV investment plans, with around £40 million committed for EV charging hubs in 2021.
In London alone, MFG’s planned EV rollout is to nearly quadruple the number of open network 150kW EV chargers installed at the start of the year. So far, the company has opened 44 150kW charges in London, with a further 50 planned by the end of 2021.
MFG is to operate a dual fuel strategy over the coming decades, rolling out EV charging hubs while also continuing to provide existing fossil fuel infrastructure.
Last month, MFG become the latest to sign up to Zap-Map’s EV charging payment interoperability service Zap-Pay, and in 2019 it saw two 350kW chargers installed by IONITY at one of its Scottish forecourts.
