BP Chargemaster has unveiled its new 150kW ultra-fast charger, which is to start being deployed across its Polar network.

Dubbed the Ultracharge 150, the charging point features both CCS and CHAdeMO connectors and will be capable of providing some 100 miles of range in 10 minutes.

The charging infrastructure owner also moved to confirm plans to deploy the chargers at BP forecourts throughout the UK over the next two years.

At an industry event last month, Tufan Erginbilgic, chief executive of Downstream BP, revealed plans to install 400 of the chargers by the end of 2021, with around 100 being installed across 50 forecourts by the end of this year.

The installations are to be financed by BP Chargemaster, which now counts more than 7,000 charging points across its Polar network.

David Martell, chief executive at BP Chargemaster, said: “We shifted consumer expectations for rapid charging with the introduction of our 50kW Ultracharge unit and we are confident that the Ultracharge 150 unit will do the same for 150kW ultra-fast charging.”
