A new rapid charging hub for electric vehicles has open in Syon Park.

The 14 station facility is operated by InstaVolt which claims to have the largest network of rapid charging points in the UK and says this is the largest it has in London.

Offering speeds of up to 160kW, the superhub is in the grounds of Syon House, famous for its appearances in TV dramas like Bridgerton.

Simon Prior from the Syon Park Estate said, ‘We are delighted that the InstaVolt Super Hub is now available to our visitors and customers as part of the Estate’s wider objective of a greener future. We very much hope that drivers will make use of all the facilities at Syon Park including the coffee shop, restaurant, Garden Centre and Lakeland store whilst waiting for their vehicles to charge.”

Adrian Keen, InstaVolt’s CEO, said, “This is an important location for us as it caters for not only commuters and local drivers but those making a visit to Syon Park and its fabulous amenities together with the Hilton Hotel which has outstanding conference facilities. Our philosophy at InstaVolt is to create hubs where people can stop and recharge their EVs while at the same time relax and recharge themselves.

“Located in a busy urban area undergoing huge regeneration, the addition of our superhub will provide vital support to a busy part of London and the growing number of EVs travelling through the capital every day. More than that the installation further cements InstaVolt’s commitment to delivering high-speed, reliable charging close to major cities and towns.”

InstaVolt says its chargers are powered using 100% renewable energy and take contactless payment: there’s no need to sign up and no subscription required.

Drivers can visit the website, or sign up to the optional InstaVolt App, where they can find their nearest charging station, search for real-time availability across its sites and pay for their charge.

InstaVolt has plans in place to install 11,000 chargers in the UK and Ireland, 5,000 across Spain and Portugal, and over 300 in Iceland.
