This diversity makes EG Group an appealing choice for EV drivers, looking for efficient charging along with amenities. This only echoes the destination charging boom we’re witnessing in the UK.

Fast charging is evolving…fast. Convenience and customer experience are emerging as decisive factors. As such, the acquisition of Tesla’s ultra-fast charging units gives the group a substantial leg-up on the competition.

Tesla’s decision to make its fast-charging hardware available to industry leaders like EG Group signifies a concerted effort towards fostering sustainable mobility solutions. It mirrors Tesla’s open expansion as an increasing list of high-level manufacturers join the Supercharger network.  

The chargers, branded as “evpoint,” will operate on an open network basis, ensuring accessibility to all brands. Moreover, they support the Plug and Charge protocol, streamlining payment processes for enhanced user convenience.

EG Group’s ambitious rollout plan aims to deploy over 20,000 chargers across its sites and third-party locations. The collaboration with Tesla is a significant stride hitting this goal. Ultimately, making fast EV charging open and accessible across the country.
