Costa Coffee has partnered with InstaVolt to install pay as you go electric vehicle chargers at up to 200 of the retailer’s drive-thru sites across the UK.
Charging speeds of 120kW will be offered, capable of adding 100 miles of range in 15 minutes.
The project builds on Costa Coffee’s existing network of 176 EV charging points at selected UK locations.
InstaVolt’s Chief Executive Officer Adrian Keen, says"We are on a mission to offer our rapid chargers across easily accessible and popular locations throughout the country.”
“This partnership with Costa Coffee will further support in the ever increasing drive towards EV adoption across the UK.”
“One of the biggest barriers to customers making the switch to green clean vehicles is often a perceived lack of public car charge points.”
“We are proud to be partnering with such a well known and loved brand to build out the charging network and deliver industry leading charging technology to brand new locations.”
Costa Coffee UK&I Property Director, James Hamilton, says, "We want to ensure we're playing our part in enhancing our customers' experience as they switch to more sustainable models of transport in that all important step to tackle climate change.”
“As we continue to safely re-open our stores and deliver our ambitious UK&I growth plans, we are proud to partner with InstaVolt to embed charge points across multiple drive-thru locations, contributing to the UK’s ever growing EV charging infrastructure.”
“It’s exciting that in the time it takes for our consumers to order and enjoy their favourite Costa coffee, they can add an extra 100 miles in range and help our country reach its net-zero ambition.”
