Moto and Gridserve open latest EV service station charging hubs


Gridserve and Moto have unveiled six new high power EV chargers at the Moto Severn View service station and 11 at Moto Heston.

They join a total of 53 high-power chargers across new ‘Electric Super Hubs’ including those located at Rugby; Swansea; Exeter; Burton in Kendal and Thurrock.

The 350kW-capable high-power chargers, supplied by renewable, net zero carbon energy, can deliver up to 100 miles of range in less than 10 minutes.

All Gridserve Electric Super Hubs at Moto locations feature both CCS and CHAdeMO connectors, accept contactless payments and provide at least one extra-wide accessible charging bay for every six EV charging spaces.

In addition to its newly launched high-powered EV charging hub, the Moto Severn View site will retain its 60kW Medium Power Gridserve charger, as well as two untethered up to 22kW AC chargers.

Toddington Harper, CEO of Gridserve, said, “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.

“We are committed to ensuring all corners of the UK can benefit from the EV revolution, and these latest sites, along with our Swansea Electric Super Hub mean that EV drivers can now exclusively rely on Gridserve Electric Super Hubs to power them from London to Pembrokeshire or Pembrokeshire to London along the M4.”

Moto Chief Executive, Ken McMeikan said, “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.

“Alongside our partners at Gridserve, this roll-out is allowing us to bring significant upgrades in power and charging facilities at our sites.”
