Electric Highway to connect Lands End and John O'Groats
The point will become part of the Electric Highway, which includes almost 250 charging points at 150 locations across the UK, in most cases offering an 80% charge for compatible electric vehicles within half an hour.
With sites at 95% of Britain’s motorway service areas, as well as Ikea stores in city centres, the Electric Highway is now delivery enough energy to power a million miles of electric driving every month. The electricity used is supplied using renewable sources.
Dale Vince, founder of the Electric Highway, said: “The idea of being able to complete that iconic journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats in any electric car you can buy from a showroom is something quite special – if you’d have said that was possible five years ago, people would have laughed at you.
"Our Electric Highway already covers over 95% of the motorway network, and we've begun the installation of electricity pumps on A-roads and strategic locations such as airports and ports – with significant new funding just secured, we’ll be stepping on the gas in the coming months to keep pace with demand."
