!(https://abs-0.twimg.com/emoji/v2/svg/26a1.svg) AND WE ARE LIVE! !(https://abs-0.twimg.com/emoji/v2/svg/26a1.svg) We’re thrilled to have launched the expansion of our popular Stroud Park, Banbury hub, with eight new 150kW Alpitronic chargers! This brings the total number of chargers on site to 16, making it one of the UK’s largest charging hubs serving the motorways!
And they have just announced it will double in size again…
It’s they most busy site in the U.K.
BIG news for Banbury! We’re once again doubling the size of our #Banbury #EVcharging hub! The site will soon boast 16 new ultra-rapid chargers, creating a hub of 32 chargers in total, helping more EV drivers get back on the road quickly. https://instavolt.co.uk/banbury-hub-doubles/…
Yes I was about to post this but in view of the recent news decided not to rub salt into the wound!
Pressure off the Ospreys just down the road…
Wish they would have made them undercover… although with the new announcement
I saw the Instavolt info long before I have just seen the Onto email.
Onto are not alone in the decisions on EV subscriptions
Last month I got notification that Pivotal JLR charges on the I-pace will go up next year.
I’ve been lucky, only paying £850 originally, which went up this year to £1000, but the tier is actually £1250 (I-pace is discounted) which is what it will become. If I stay subscribed it will not change for a full year, whereas any new subscribers will pay the £1250.
Ooof - yes £850=>£1250 seems the typical sort of hike anyway. Are you sticking with it? (I.e. is it still value?)
Love the Jag and kept it longer than we initially envisaged, but really need to cut costs, so looking at Ioniq 5 next year (Mar/Apr) and maybe for 12 month’s commitment.
ooo - if I “needed” a car of that size, the Ioniq 5 would be my choice…… potentially (now) looking for some good deals in 2023…. Maybe there’ll be a supply v demand re-balancing in the coming months….
I was reading a review head to head and this probably explains why we both enjoy the I-pace soo much….
And of course it drives with real brio. Forget the 0-62mph in 4.5secs headline (this Ioniq does it in 7.4secs, the twin motor in 5.2secs), it’s the way the Jaguar heads down a difficult B-road, how composed and engaging it is, that distinguishes it. It might be four or five years old, but I honestly think the only electric car that betters it currently is the Porsche Taycan. It inspires confidence, leans evenly through corners, manages to feel and behave like a Jaguar should. It highlights just how disinterested in driving the Hyundai is.
But when it’s looking like £300/month cheaper, well I can live with it, especially when I’m pretty happy in a Zoe
Driving an EV is just such fun, period.
Given the changes coming along in 2023 it unfortunately seems access to this nice looking site will go away for me (although I haven’t been in that area anyway and unlikely to be there before 2023)
Personally £120/month for one network is not financially viable. I understand that all networks have increased prices however the partners of Shell from what I have seen tend to cost the same or more per kWh as InstaVolt. So seems something more is at play here maybe?
