Gridserve has installed 17 new electric vehicle chargers at two of the busiest Moto motorway service areas, Severn View and Heston.

The launches bring the total of new Gridserve ultra-fast chargers to be fitted at Moto service areas this year to 53, across six sites. The chargers are capable of adding up to 100 miles of range in less than 10 minutes.

Six of the new charge points are now open at Moto Severn View and 11 at Moto Heston (pictured), a very popular charging location as it is very close to Heathrow Airport. Other Moto areas to receive Gridserve’s 350kW fastest chargers include Rugby, Swansea, Exeter, Thurrock, and Burton-in-Kendal.

All Gridserve Electric Super Hubs at Moto locations have been designed to 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. Real-time status updates are shared with most popular EV charging maps, including Zap-Map.

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.”

Toddington Harper, CEO of Gridserve, said: “Gridserve is continuing its multi-million-pound investment in the Gridserve Electric Highway charging network. 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.
