1. EV APP of the Week: Instavolt App

The Instavolt App runs alongside our contactless payment option and provides another simple way to access our award winning DC Rapid Electric Vehicle charging network.

In addition to the functional benefits the App provides (i.e. location mapping, navigation and VAT receipts), customers using our EV charging App are given exclusive access to the following rewards programs, which are not available to those using our contactless payment option.

2. EV Podcast: Charged Future

The World's FIRST Commercial Electric Plane - Robert takes to the skies! Top Gun may have Tom Cruise, but the Fully Charged Show has Robert Llewellyn AND an ELECTRIC plane! Join Robert as he takes to the skies to experience first hand the world's first commercial battery powered electric plane and steps into the third era of aviation!

3. EV Tip: Visual Range via Sat Nav

EV sat navs, either factory-fitted or aftermarket, can be incredibly useful when planning a route to an unfamiliar destination. Use a system with charging point locations to kiss goodbye to range anxiety.

The Zap-Map route planner tool is a good example. It will suggest up to three chargers situated within a mile of a route, based on the estimated battery range of the car. It will even use real-world data to reduce the range if a lead-footed driver averages much over 50mph.

Other systems enable a driver to see if charging points are free or in use, as well as checking that the stations are compatible with a given make or model of EV. Some will even prepare the battery for recharging before a planned stop, allowing for fast charging.

4. EV News: Current News

Households with electric vehicles (EV) and heat pumps are now saving £1,180 compared to those with petrol cars and gas heating.

5. EV News: Discover EV
