Shell has opened its first EV charging hub in the UK in Fulham, London - replacing existing petrol and diesel pumps with nine high-power 175kW charging points. Described by the brand as global pilot, this is the first time the company has converted one of its existing sites to cater solely for electric vehicles.
The site has been completely reconfigured with nine high-powered, ultra-rapid 175kW charge points that accept contactless payments and come with CCS and CHAdeMO connectors. Customers can also start a charge – which costs 49p ker kWh – via the Shell Recharge app by scanning a QR code on the charge unit. The location of the hub can be seen here.
