Nice!

Good to see!

Is “GRIDSERVE” an acronym? Have been wondering for a while as it’s always capitalised

I don’t think so. I suspect it’s just about trying to reinforce brand recognition etc

Lots of ‘holes’ in the coverage map to fill in, but it’s great to see the speed of replacement of chargers already swapped out. Should make a huge difference this year.

My main concern is that 6 chargers isn’t really enough, and even 12 might not be enough before too long.

Hopefully everyone involved is building in the necessary spare capacity to expand these hubs as and when required.

Looks like we won’t get a Gridserve Charging Card then…

ONTO vehicles will simply be set up on Autocharge! It’ll be like owning a Tesla with free SuC Access for life!

Wish they’d fix burtonwood (M62 J8), both chargers there have been totally offline for over a year.

You think we will get Gridserve included in our membership?

It sure would be amazing to have them too.

That was what I was told by Toddington Harper, Gridserve CEO. It’ll either be another card, or they may join the other networks that work with the Shell Card that we already have. Another possibility is that they will simply enable Autocharge on our vehicles and then invoice ONTO directly.

Well if we do get the gridserve electric highway that pretty much secures me as a permanent customer (currently Kona) and may even not bother renewing my Motability Ioniq and getting second EV from Onto! Hurry up Gridserve, seal the deal! Looking forward to hopefully have a ID3 Family Pro in September and Gridserve charging fingers crossed! Then it’s the Ioniq 5 to ponder and hope…. Good times indeed.
