Starbucks and Osprey partner on rapid charging

Rapid charging firm Osprey Charging has partnered with Starbucks UK on the first of several new rapid charging locations.

A facility providing three rapid charge points is now open for customers at a new Starbucks drive-through on Intown Road, Aberdeen.

The Starbucks-owned site is the first of several in the UK intended for rapid charge points with Osprey, improving the convenience of public EV charging.

The 75kW charge points are compatible with every EV on the market today, and typically add 100 miles of range in around 30 minutes.

They also offer simple payment for drivers, accepting contactless bank cards, Apple/Google Pay, the Osprey App and RFID card payments, as well as payments through all major third-party payment methods including fleet cards.

Jacqui Wetherly, Director of Sustainability at Starbucks UK said: “We are committed to providing our customers with the opportunity to make more sustainable choices. The opening of the EV charging point at Aberdeen is a great example of this and is the first of several such projects we have planned. The ability to charge easily and conveniently is critical in making electric vehicles a reality and we are pleased to be able offer customers the opportunity to do so while enjoying the iconic Starbucks experience.”

Andrew Nosworthy, Commercial Director at Osprey Charging said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Starbucks UK to bring reliable, rapid EV charging facilities to their customers. This new location in Aberdeen improves access to public EV charging in the east of Scotland, supporting the drive to decarbonise transport in the UK.”
