London to Brighton is now easy Pease-y with new Electric Super Hub

Planning a trip to the south coast for your next weekend getaway? Good news, we’ve just electrified the route from London to Brighton with a new Electric Super Hub.

Located at the Pease Pottage Moto services on the M23, it features six 350kW-capable High Power chargers – that’s enough to add 100 miles of range in less than 10 minutes.

And because we know that it’ll be popular as more and more of us switch to electric cars and demand for charging increases, we’ve future-proofed the site so we can double the number of chargers in the summer – perfect timing for those trips to the seaside.

Providing easy and reliable charging on this route will be a game-changer those EV drivers looking to hit the beach at popular holiday hotspots such as Bognor Regis, Worthing and Newhaven this summer. Not to mention weekend day-trippers to Brighton Pier.

There’s even better news for holidaymakers heading south. In addition to the Pease Pottage Electric Super Hub, we’re currently building the London Gatwick Electric Forecourt® a few miles down the road. You’ll be spoilt for choice.

Pease Pottage is our 13th Electric Super Hub and second this year, following the opening of Solstice Park, near Stonehenge. It’s a fast start to 2023 and sets us on the way to smashing past our 2022 record of more than 100 High Power chargers installed.
