Just heard on the news that as part of the upgrading of transport infrastructure there will be a rapid expansion of rapid chargers at MSA's. Anyone know what this actually means and when ?
Looks like rapid deployment may be up to 4 years, From that article :-Electric car charging points UK: government sets out vision for nationwide network - thanks to WonkotheSane on the EV News Rides again thread
"Rapid" starts at 50kW, so 3 times better (if your car can charge that fast)Looks like rapid deployment may be up to 4 years, From that article :-
"By 2023, the aim is to have at least six open-access points (capable of at least 150kW charging) at every service area, with 10-12 points at the busiest locations. "
And is 150 kW rapid or far better ?
You are so right, we need to crack on with improving the EV infrastructure to support mass adoption. Luckily the chancellor has discovered a whole forest of magic money trees to pay for it, so it’s not a problem !Grant Shapps just said YES. The country cannot afford to dither about on this.

Is that because they are no use for your GTE?It seem there are 111 MSAs in UK.
So we get between 666 and 1400ish super rapid chargers by 2023. Possibly catch up with the present Tesla network by then?
I'm glad that they are doing it but excuse me for being underwhelmed.
