InstaVolt starts work on second EV charging hub in Iceland
Reykjavik, September 21 2023: Leading rapid electric vehicle charging network, InstaVolt, has started work on its second electric vehicle charging site in Iceland. The move follows its highly successful launch of the country’s largest EV charging hub in June at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel just five minutes from Keflavik Airport.
The new location will feature four ultra rapid 160kW chargers at Fridheimar Tomato Farm – one of the country’s top tourist destinations, which is often included on the Golden Circle tour, just 20 minutes from Gullfoss Falls and 30 minutes from the world-famous geysers in Haukadular valley.
InstaVolt, which has a reputation for reliability and ease of use with payment by contactless debit or credit card, has plans for a further 200 installations in Iceland over the next two years. The charging stations, located at Fridheimar’s iconic restaurant, will be powered by 100% renewable energy.
This 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.
