Shell has claimed the UK’s first 150kW electric vehicle charger on a forecourt, at a Shell/Waitrose site in Battersea, London. The new charger is a part of Shell Recharge, Shell’s on-forecourt electric vehicle charging service.
Drivers will be able to pay using a contactless payment card, the NewMotion app/card3 or the SMOOV app. There are no subscription or connection fees.
Shell Recharge is run with Allego who manage the operation of the 50kW and 150kW chargers. Shell also acquired NewMotion, with which it is installing home and workplace chargers. Shell Energy Retail customers can now get a home charge point installed for a discounted price.
Shell is also planning to install super-fast 350kW charging points across ten European countries.
