GRIDSERVE and Moto have unveiled 17 new electric vehicle (EV) chargers across two sites, as they continue to roll out their Electric Super Hubs.

Six 350kW-capable EV chargers have been installed at Moto Severn View and 11 at Moto Heston, with both sites chosen to help expand the charging options of those travelling between London, South Wales and the South West.

All of the new chargers have been designed to include both CCS and CHAdeMO connectors, to accept contactless payments and to provide at least one extra-wide accessible charging bay for every six EV charging spaces.

Real-time status updates will be available for the chargers on a myriad of EV charging maps, the companies said, including on Zap-Map.

In 2022, GRIDSERVE and Moto have added 53 high power chargers across six new Electric Super Hubs, including chargers in Thurrock going live in May, and Exeter, Burton-in-Kendal and Swansea in April.

“GRIDSERVE is continuing its multimillion-pound investment in the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway charging network with the launch of its fifth and sixth Electric Super Hubs delivered so far this year,” said Toddington Harper, CEO of GRIDSERVE.

“We’re building a robust, dependable, nationwide charging network so that anyone, anywhere, can feel confident about driving any type of electric vehicle and have a great charging experience.”

In addition to the development of its Electric Super Hubs, GRIDSERVE is continuing to develop Electric Forecourts – with its second site in Norwich opening in April, following on from its flagship Braintree site – and build out the Electric Highway, which it acquired from Ecotricity in June.

To date, the Electric Super Hubs opened by GRIDSERVE and Moto this year include:

“As the largest UK Motorway Services Operator, Moto is setting out to transform the EV charging experience for motorists on motorways with the roll-out of Ultra-Rapid Charging Hubs at all of our sites over the coming 12 months,” added Moto chief executive, Ken McMeikan.

“Alongside our partners at GRIDSERVE, this roll-out is allowing us to bring significant upgrades in power and charging facilities at our sites. We are absolutely delighted with our two newest EV ultra-rapid hubs at Severn View on the M4 and Heston on the M1 and hope that EV drivers will love them.”

As well as the new GRIDSERVE chargers, the Moto Severn site will retain a 60kW GRIDSERVE charger and two untethered up to 22kW AC chargers already installed at the service station.
