The first of a £1billion nationwide network of ‘electric forecourts’ will open before the end of the year in Essex
A 2.5-acre site is due to be completed in Braintree with links to Stansted Airport and the M11 motorway
There will be 24 rapid electric car chargers and 6 Tesla Superchargers specifically for Tesla cars
It will also feature a state-of-the-art two-storey building with shops, a chill-out area and EV education centre
Today, operator Gridserve announced its ‘Best of British’ retail partners – including WH Smith, Costa Coffee and Booths supermarkets – ahead of the first forecourt’s completion in November.
Planning applications for two additional forecourts in Uckfield and Norwich East have recently been submitted.
