European manufacturers charge ahead to expand EV infrastructureBack

EV3A consortium of electric vehicle manufacturers have united in order to develop a network of rapid charge points across the UK

Members of the joint project include Nissan, BMW, VW and Renault. This marks the first time leading pure electric vehicle manufacturers have come together to accelerate the growth of EV charging infrastructure.

Once completed, the Rapid Charge Network will comprise of 70 multi-standard rapid chargers covering 1,100km. This will ensure that EV drivers can travel long distances, secure in the knowledge that they will be in close proximity to a charger.

The network will provide EV-friendly links to major ports and cities including Stranraer, Liverpool, Holyhead, Birmingham, Felixstowe, Leeds and Kingston upon Hull, as well as five international airports.

Baroness Kramer, UK Minister of State for Transport said, ‘We are serious about plug-in vehicles and have a comprehensive package of measures to help consumers and industry make the switch to electric. The UK now has the best rapid charging network in Europe. Projects like this highlight how industry is showing its confidence in the rapidly growing market.’
