InstaVolt launches app to address range anxiety in UK

InstaVolt has launched a dedicated mobile app to help combat range angst amongst British drivers and fast track EV adoption in the UK.

The announcement comes days after MPs voiced concerns about the Government’s approach towards the uptake of “zero-emission cars” and widening the roll out of EV charge points across the country.

InstaVolt’s app is optional for users and sits alongside the company’s popular contactless payment option that revolutionised public charging when it launched in 2017.

The app offers motorists additional functionality including a live map of InstaVolt’s charging network, a loyalty scheme that allows drivers to earn credit every time they charge and the ability to track charging history.

The news follows a flurry of recent partnership announcements from InstaVolt, including the business’ recent tie up with Costa Coffee to install rapid EV chargers at up to 200 drive-thru sites across the UK, and a collaboration with car subscription service Onto to offer customers free charging across the whole of the InstaVolt public charging network.

Adrian Keen, chief executive officer of InstaVolt, said: “MPs criticism of the Government’s EV adoption strategy hit the headlines last week, and while we appreciate some of the concerns raised, we would argue a huge amount is being done to improve charging access in the UK and fight range anxiety amongst drivers by networks such as InstaVolt.”

The InstaVolt network has over 600 chargers nationwide and is capable of delivering up to 125kW charging speeds – adding hundreds of miles of range in half an hour.
