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. We hope you’re cool with that.
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.
Connector types: CCS, CHAdeMO
Our High Power chargers are the most powerful in the country and can provide a maximum 350kW capacity, meaning the latest electric vehicles can gain 100 miles of range in less than 10 minutes.
Connector types: Type 2
Our Low Power chargers provide even more EV charging flexibility as they use a Type 2 connector and provide a maximum 22kW capacity. You’ll find the Type 2 connector on most plug-in electric vehicles, regardless of age.
