Health clubs to add fast EV charging to the mix

InstaVolt is rolling out rapid electric vehicle charging points to Bannatyne health clubs across the UK. The installation of more than 70 chargers is underway, with 56 already live, and the Bannatyne Group says more are likely to follow as EV sales continue to grow.

The rapid DC charging stations charge at a rate of 50kW, so most electric cars could be fully charged in less time than an hour.

InstaVolt installs and maintains chargers for free and makes its money from the sale of electricity to drivers. It  gives site hosts a rental income for letting them use space to house the chargers. Drivers charge on a subscription-free, pay-as-you-go basis using contactless credit or debit cards.

CEO Tim Payne said: “As electric vehicles become more and more popular, it’s a no brainer for businesses to start offering charging points to customers.”
