Gridserve has opened its Exeter Electric Hub which features 12 high-power chargers with a maximum 350kW capacity – enough for the latest EVs to add up to 100-miles of range in less than 10 minutes.
The new site, located at junction 30 of the M5, features both CCS and Chademo connectors, accepts contactless payment and is supplied with 100% net zero carbon energy from Gridserve’s hybrid solar and battery farms.
In addition, Gridserve has committed to install another 12 high-power chargers at Moto Exeter as part of future development.
The announcement is part of Gridserve’s multi-million-pound investment in its Electric Highway, a huge upgrade of the UK’s motorway EV charging infrastructure.
Last month, Gridserve opened another Electric Hub at Moto Swansea – the first high-power public charging facility of its kind in Wales.
Toddington Harper, CEO of Gridserve, said, “We are delivering the most comprehensive EV charging roll-out the UK motorway network has ever seen.
“We are determined to make charging anxiety a thing of the past and the new Electric Hub at Moto Exeter is a blueprint for the future of motorway charging, giving drivers the confidence to go electric without compromise.”
Ken McMeikan, Moto chief executive, added, “At Moto, we are absolutely passionate about transforming the electric vehicle charging experience for drivers across the UK’s motorways by delivering the capacity, reliability, simplicity and charging speed UK motorists need.
“As the biggest motorway services operator in the UK, Moto is uniquely positioned to help redress the geographic imbalances in the EV charging market and we are delivering on that potential.”
