High-power EV charging now available at Cambridge Services on A14
High-power EV charging is now available at Cambridge Services, off junction 24 of the A14 (M11).
Extra MSA Group, operator of Cambridge Services, has partnered with Europe’s leading high-power charging network IONITY to launch a complete network of high-power charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs), now available at all Extra MSA Group motorway service areas (MSAs) across the country.
The installations are a welcome step towards creating a fully-connected network fit for the future of EV usage, helping ensure that customers can access reliable, ultra-fast charging points and undertake long-distance journeys with increased ease as the country transitions to more environmentally-friendly vehicles and modes of transport.
The new IONITY charging stations at Extra MSA Group’s MSAs are among the highest-power facilities available on the motorway network in England, geographically spread from Cullompton in the south of England, to Leeds Skelton Lake in the north.
Extra MSA Group’s connected EV charging network helps ensure customers can continue to undertake long-distance journeys with full range confidence.
IONITY, in conjunction with Extra MSA Group, has already installed 38 charging points with a high-speed charging capacity of up to 350kW across all eight of its MSA locations, with more to follow at existing and proposed new MSA developments.
The infrastructure is part of the preparations for 2030 when the sale of new internal combustion engine cars/light vehicles will be prohibited.
Andrew Long, CEO at Extra MSA Group, said: “At Extra MSA Group, we are committed to providing all road users with a safe environment to take a break from their journeys, rest and refuel in high-quality, comfortable facilities. Our work with IONITY further enhances these overall objectives.”
Andreas Atkins, country manager UK & Ireland at IONITY, added: “Serving up to 350kW charging capacity, our chargers work rapidly using 100 per cent renewable energy – making for not only emission-free but carbon-neutral driving, and the installation of these in a network that connects drivers right across the country will make for a future of reliable journeys and quick stops for sustainable vehicles.”
