The first electric car Chargers have been installed this week along the M8 motorway to support EV drivers travelling between Glasgow and Edinburgh.
The two Rapid Chargers from eVolt can be found at the Maxim Office Park, an extensive commercial and business park ideally located between Scotland’s largest two cities. Maxim has restaurants and on-site catering services for drivers whilst they stop and charge their EV.
eVolt has installed two Raption 50kW Rapid Chargers and two eVolve 7kW Chargers in this new hub. The Rapid Chargers are capable of charging two vehicles simultaneously at full power in approximately 30 minutes.
eVolt has worked continuously with the Energy Saving Trust since the funding programme began in 2012 and has now installed more than 130 Rapid Chargers across Scotland. These two new points join the extensive ChargePlace Scotland Network.
Craig Ritchie, Director at Maxim Office Park, said:
“The Rapid Chargers are a great addition to the Park and our prominent location along one of Scotland’s busiest motorways will attract usage from motorists who commute between Edinburgh and Glasgow.
The Park already adopts eco-friendly measures including dedicated recycling points, biodiverse parklands and a comprehensive green travel plan, so hosting the EV chargers is another step towards Maxim being one of the greenest business parks in Scotland.”
