(ChargePoint Services & MFG Ahead in EV Rapid Charging Roll-Out)
11 October 2018 – ChargePoint Services and Motor Fuel Group (MFG) are now the leading provider of electric vehicle charging at urban forecourts as well as arterial fuel stations nationwide. The two companies have been successfully working together to provide the UK with the biggest electric vehicle Rapid charging network in forecourt locations. With over 120 Rapid charger sites already installed or underway, they are on target for around 150 50kW+ chargers by early 2019.
Ahead of all the major fuel suppliers including BP & Shell, the GeniePoint Network is expanding swiftly to provide EV drivers with the security that they can recharge their electric vehicle easily and quickly and often at their preferred local fuel forecourt – www.geniepoint.co.uk (mobile web app).
