InstaVolt featured on BBC Breakfast TV

InstaVolt featured on BBC Breakfast TV.

InstaVolt was in the media spotlight this morning as the company appeared on BBC Breakfast TV.

The firm was featured on the breakfast news in light of its multi-million-pound deal with the world’s largest electric vehicle (EV) charging network, ChargePoint.

InstaVolt signed an agreement with the Silicon Valley giant to purchase more than 200 of its electric vehicle rapid charging solutions earlier this month and the BBC’s piece focused on what the deal might mean for the UK’s EV drivers.

Director of Operations Matt Tunstall was shown plotting out charging points at a garage forecourt, while an interview with ChargePoint’s Pasquale Romano covered how the technology will help drivers.

Tim Payne, CEO of InstaVolt, said: “It was a pleasure to host the BBC film crew once again and show how our work is helping to make the UK an easier place to drive and charge an electric vehicle. Our partnership with ChargePoint plays a huge part in our mission to install 3,000 rapid EV chargers by 2020. Importantly, the charging units are future-proofed so the units can be configured to meet the precise requirements of any site and can be scaled incrementally as demand for higher rate charging increases. This is particularly important as EV manufacturers begin to bring out new models with increased battery capacity.”

InstaVolt, which owns and maintains electric vehicle charging points at places such as forecourts and service stations, will begin installing the first of the ChargePoint ‘Express Plus’ rapid charge systems this summer. They will be strategically placed close to popular routes across the country, enabling drivers to easily charge their vehicles during long journeys.
