InstaVolt has joined Octopus Energy’s EV roaming service Electroverse which provides access to more than half a million public charge points globally.
It now serves one in four EV drivers in the UK – more than any other public charging service in the country.
Electroverse also offers embedded features to improve the charging experience, including an interactive global map showing chargers’ availability, a route-planner, in-car support with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto as well as Plug and Charge support.
InstaVolt operates more than 1,300 ultra-rapid and rapid charge points across about 550 locations in the UK.
Its UK charge points can be found at retail and hospitality locations including Costa Coffee, McDonald’s, Booths Supermarkets and Bannatyne Health Clubs.
Matt Davies, Director at Octopus Electroverse, said, “As more drivers switch to electric, we’re making charging on-the-go as slick as possible. We already have over 580 charge point operators on Octopus Electroverse and we’re incredibly excited to welcome InstaVolt on board.”
Adrian Keen, CEO at InstaVolt, said, “Record numbers of UK drivers are deciding to make the switch to EVs, and as a business we are committed to improving the charging experience for customers with plans to install 10,000 chargers by 2030.
“Our partnership with Octopus Electroverse is yet another important step towards decarbonising the UK’s roads and provides more options for EV drivers needing to charge. The Electroverse tech is industry leading, and the interactivity creates a seamless experience for users.”
