Every motorway service area in England will have at least six rapid electric vehicle chargepoints in place by 2023, the DfT has said.
The chargepoints will be funded by a rapid charging fund announced in the Budget in March.
Some service areas will have ten to 12 of the 150-350kW chargepoints, all of which will operate on an open access basis. “We are confident this will be more than enough to meet demand from electric vehicles by this date,” said the DfT.
For a typical electric vehicle with a battery size of 62kWh, and a range of 200-240 miles, a 15-minute charge at a 150 kilowatt chargepoint would deliver a range of 120-145 miles, it said.
The DfT is planning for around 2,500 rapid chargepoints across England’s motorways and major A roads by 2030, and 6,000 by 2035.
