InstaVolt to upgrade EV charging network


InstaVolt is to upgrade more than 200 of its existing 50kW chargers to 125kW outputs, significantly reducing charging times.

The work on the ChargePoint CPE250 will take place across the network over the next six weeks, with all upgrades finalised by the end of March 2023.

These newly upgraded chargers will join InstaVolt’s already established network of high-speed chargers.

Customers will be able to track progress of the upgrades via InstaVolt’s social media channels, and the newly upgraded chargers can be identified using InstaVolt’s charger map, the InstaVolt app or on digital EV platforms such as Zap-Map.

The upgrades to the network follow several site expansions, with additional chargers being added to existing high footfall locations to support drivers as EV numbers grow.

Adrian Keen, CEO of InstaVolt said, “With this round of upgrades, drivers will experience faster rates of charging on our popular CPE250 chargers, subject to their car being able to accept greater than 50kW.

“This will reduce charging times and allow drivers to get back on the road sooner.

“The majority of EVs on the road will benefit from this upgrade. With most of our CPE250s located next to convenience retail, and roadside food and drinks outlets including operators such as Costa Coffee and McDonald’s, this is another example of InstaVolt perfectly matching charging speeds to dwell time and providing an even better experience for its drivers.

“The upgrades also benefit our fleet customers and is another great step to support the electrification of future fleets, reducing charging times and getting drivers back on the road quickly”.
