The first public Quick Charger for Electric Vehicles (EVs) in Cornwall officially opens this week at Cornwall Services, Victoria.
The charger, installed by renewable energy supplier Ecotricity, is the first on a trunk route in Cornwall and forms part of its ‘electric highway’ network at motorway service stations nationwide, able to charge vehicles in less than 30 minutes.
On Friday and Saturday (January 16 & 17), independent EV expert ecodrive will be hosting an exhibition at Cornwall Services of the latest electric vehicles from Kia, Nissan, Renault, Peugeot and Mitsubishi. There will also be a demonstration of the new charger.
Matthew Trevaskis, Director at ecodrive, said: “This new Quick Charger is a fantastic addition to the charging infrastructure in Cornwall and will be very useful for existing EV drivers to get more out of their electric cars and vans.
“It also connects Cornwall to the rest of the electric highway network on the M5 allowing drivers to use their cars for longer trips and for visitors to drive to Cornwall in their EVs.”
The exhibition of vehicles will run Friday 10am-4pm and Saturday 10am-2pm.
