BP Chargemaster is rolling out 150kW ultra-fast rapid charging units with new units installed at a BP retail site in Hammersmith, London.
As the number of electric vehicles continues to grow in the UK and more manufacturers introduce next generation EVs with larger battery capacity, fast charging times and easier accessibility, the roll out of an ultra-fast charging network aims to drive the growing adoption of EVs. Offering convenient and reliable ultra-fast charging to drivers across the country is said to be essential in supporting this uptake, particularly in urban centres.
BP Chargemaster launched their first ultra-fast charging site in August 2019 with the first two units installed in Cranford, Hounslow. Four-hundred further chargers are set to be installed across the UK, with the first two ultra-fast units having been installed in Hounslow earlier in 2019.
