evyve currently projects to install thousands more chargers by the end of 2025 and 10,000 chargers by 2030. The evyve charging network is planned to consist of Tritium’s innovative modular chargers, including the company’s 75kW charger and highly scalable 150kW fast charger.
“With the number of registered battery-electric cars in the UK growing by more than 40% in 2022, it’s more important than ever that drivers have access to fast and reliable charging technology to ensure a convenient driver experience and a seamless transition to e-mobility,” said Tritium CEO Jane Hunter. “We’re proud to be the preferred fast charger provider for the evyve charging network, and we look forward to helping them accomplish their goal to become the largest destination and enroute charging network in the UK. For Tritium, this announcement is a reflection of an increasing number of conversations with customers looking to address anticipated multi-year demand and secure product availability beyond just the next 12 months.”
