POLAR public charging network keeps pace with EV growth


According to Chargemaster, the POLAR charging network has expanded by 50 per cent, matching the growth of EV registrations, which is now over 150,000 - a rise of 50 per cent in one year.

6,500 charging points are now on the POLAR network, which offers DC and AC rapid charging, as well as AC slow and fast charging. POLAR operates the country’s largest rapid charging network, with 375 rapid chargers available.
David Martell, Chief Executive of Chargemaster said: “A reliable rapid charging network is very important for increasing EV adoption, and we have grown our nationwide network from 250 units in June 2017 to over 375 today
“The idea that charging infrastructure is not keeping pace with the growing market of EVs is false – there is already existing capacity in the network, and we will continue to ensure that drivers have an expansive and reliable public charging network.”
