Leading rapid electric vehicle charging network, InstaVolt, has launched its latest rapid EV charging site in Iceland.  

Two ultra-rapid chargers, powered by 100% renewable energy provided by HS Orka, have been activated at N1 Reykholt Service Station, next to Bjarnabúð convenience store, near the village of Reykholt which is known for its history and culture. 

The move follows InstaVolt’s recent successes in Iceland. It opened the country’s largest EV charging hub – with 20 chargers –  in June 2023 at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel just five minutes from Keflavik Airport and late last year energised four ultra-rapid chargers at Fridheimar Tomato Farm. 

InstaVolt, which has a reputation for reliability and ease of use with payment by contactless debit or credit card, has plans for a further 300 installations in Iceland over the next two years, with an additional five sites expected by Spring.  

InstaVolt Chairman, Adrian Pike, said: “We’re making reliable and rapid EV charging more available throughout the country.  

“This has been an excellent opportunity to help develop Iceland’s EV rapid charging infrastructure. It represents a significant investment by InstaVolt and has created a unique partnership where 100% renewable energy will be powering Iceland’s electric vehicles. We look forward to continuing our roll-out of rapid chargers across the country.” 

This latest EV charging site represents an important target as Iceland looks to achieve its objective of banning the registration of new gasoline and diesel cars by 2030, while developing its EV charging network for both residents and tourists, who will be encouraged to travel sustainably around the country.
