The future of EV charging has arrived in Norwich

Forget what you know about filling stations because the Norwich Electric Forecourt® has just re-written the rule book for the electric era.

Our aim is to make charging an electric vehicle the most awesome, enjoyable, ultra-convenient and stress-free experience it can possibly be. And from day one, we’re providing the fastest chargers and delivering sustainable, net zero carbon energy at a cost that is far lower than filling a car with petrol or diesel.

More than an EV charging destination

The Norwich Electric Forecourt® is so much more than an EV charging destination. It features inspiring areas to work, rest and shop, with some of your favourite brands including M&S Food, Costa and WHSmith.

There are office pods that are rentable by the hour, plus a dedicated electric vehicle showroom – just without any pushy sales people. All our furnishings and finishes have been considered through a lens of sustainabity to create a vibe that is so hygge, you’ll probably want to pack your dressing gown.
