Default BP Chargemaster activates first 150kW ultra-fast EV chargers

BP Chargemaster activates first 150kW ultra-fast EV chargers




BP Chargemaster, the UKs largest electric car charge point provider, has switched on the first of its new Ultracharge 150kW EV chargers at a London fuel station.

Two charging points are now in operation at BP's Cranford fuel station near London Heathrow airport - the first in a planned roll-out of 400 ultra-fast charging points by 2021, which include 100 units at 50 sites by the end of 2019.

Unveiled in June at Silverstone, the new Ultracharge 150 is the first such unit to be built in the UK and will allow EVs to charge at their maximum rated speed.

It is claimed the charger will deliver around 100 miles of range in 10 minutes, which approaches the 75 miles per five minutes offered by Tesla's third-generation Supercharger, revealed in March. The Californian maker's new unit is capable of splitting 1MW of power between four cars, for a 250kW charging rate per car.

The new Ultracharger 150 features both CCS and Chademo connectors, making it compatible with the majority of EVs on UK roads. Customers can either subscribe to the service for regular use, or pay by the hour.

The chargers will be part of the Polar network, which is made up of more than 6500 public charging points across the UK.

The roll-out will help future-proof the UKs charging network, as currently very few EVs are capable of charging at 150kW. Audis E-tron is one such EV and its 95kWh battery can be charged to 80% in around 30 minutes.

Tufan Erginbilgic CEO of BPs product and service-led arm, Downstream said: "As the world of mobility evolves, BP is determined to be the fuel provider of choice whether drivers need electric charging or liquid fuels.

It's good to see BP diversifying to EV charging. Don't want to end up like Kodak.

All of the petroleum companies should be doing this. It future proofs them somewhat.

Precisely, but do not call them petroleum companies. They are energy companies. They love money more than oil. I promise you. When they see a profit in this they will do it! I GUARANTEE you that.

just had a funny thought. How many times has a gas station exploded in a movie when a car or truck plows into a pump?

Well, when the first car drives over an electric charging station in a movie and they all get electrocuted they are officially main stream. The clock is ticking

I'm sure you'd get a charge out of that. ba-dum-tsss!

Need more of that kind of thinking here by "our energy companies" to help secure their place in a less oil-dependent future as far as fuel is concerned. Side effect would help increase EV adoption rates and reduce the "range anxiety" associated with EV ownership.
