Gridserve opens EV super hub at Moto Wetherby


Gridserve and Moto have launched their seventh electric super hub this year at Moto Wetherby on the A1(M) at junction 46.

The new facility has 12 high power chargers, two of which have accessible bays.

Moto Wetherby takes the total number of electric super hubs to eight across the country including Rugby, Burton-in-Kendal, Exeter, Thurrock, Heston West, Severn View, and Swansea.

Gridserve electric super hubs have been designed to feature both CCS and CHAdeMO connectors, accept contactless payment and provide real-time status updates to EV charging maps.

The Moto Wetherby site also retains three medium power chargers with CCS, CHAdeMO and AC connectors, which brings the total number of charging units at the location to 15.

Toddington Harper, CEO of Gridserve said, “We are committed to building an awesome UK-wide charging network, enabling anyone, anywhere, in any type of EV to take on any journey and have a great customer experience, and with the opening of Moto Wetherby, we are able to deliver more people in the North of England this experience.”

Ken McMeikan, Moto Chief Executive, said: “As the largest UK Motorway Services Operator, we are continuing our mission to transform the UK’s rest stop experience and reducing range anxiety by revolutionising the EV charging experience for motorists on motorways is at the heart of our plans.

“We are delighted to continue our roll-out of the Ultra-Rapid Charging Hubs and we will be opening more hubs at all of our Motorway Service Areas across the country in the coming 12 months.”
