InstaVolt has been listed in the top 10 most picturesque locations in the UK to charge an electric car.
The list was put together by Go Ultra Low, the government and industry campaign to promote the uptake of electric vehicles.
InstaVolt’s pair of rapid chargers at Route 303 Restaurant on the A303 made it into the list, thanks in part to their stunning view over the Devon countryside.
CEO of InstaVolt Tim Payne said: “We can see why our chargers at Honiton made it into the list. The photograph really captures what a beautiful part of the world it is and we regularly get great feedback on this location.”
InstaVolt’s chargers at Route 303 Restaurant have proven popular since they went live. Users can enjoy a range of USA and Mexican foods while they charge up, or simply take some time out to enjoy the view.
Poppy Welch, Head of Go Ultra Low, said: “From a charging perspective, there has never been a better time to be an EV owner in the UK. Government and private investment in the network in recent years has seen an impressive rise in chargepoint numbers, with a mix of types and providers across the length and breadth of the UK.
“Many motorists think chargepoints are just found in urban areas like carparks in towns and cities, however, this simply isn’t the case, so we thought the best way to demonstrate this is to show people. These images showcase the significant expansion in charging infrastructure highlighting the hidden gems that exist in the UK’s charging network.”
According to Go Ultra Low, the total number of charging point connectors currently stands at close to 24,001, at over 8,600 locations, a rise of more than 140% within the last five years.
The UK also has more than 1,700 rapid chargers, making it one of Europe’s largest rapid charging networks.
