First time I’ve seen rapid chargers in the car park at a McDonalds…
This is a new installation of 2 Instavolt rapid chargers, it even has its own small substation, which hopefully means you can use each charge socket simultaneously, without it stopping.
Came across it whilst bold calling (canvassing) on Pilsworth business park in Bury today.
Want to know the cost to charge?
It’s 57p a Kw. Which is high.
We’re sure it’s the start of a commercial venture between Instavolt and McDonalds.
We think Instavolt install the rapid chargers for free, and take the lions share of the 59p a Kw charge. Although we’re sure McDonalds will be making money too.
Suppose it’s not as bad as the rapid Ionity chargers recently installed on Darwen Services, which are 75p a Kw. In this case it looks like Euro Garages want to make more profit than McDonalds.
Listen though, for those that can, just get an electric car charger for home. It’s the most convenient (charge whilst sleeping) and cheapest way to charge your electric vehicle.
Just to give you perspective…
Petrol or Diesel currently cost circa 21p a mile.
The Ionity rapid chargers on Darwen services cost circa 18p a mile.
The Instavolt rapid chargers at Pilsworth McDonalds cost circa 14p a mile.
Charging at home (28p Kw) costs circa 7p a mile.
If you’ve ordered an electric vehicle our advice is to get an electric car charger for home if you can. Failing that try and convince your employer to put one at work for the employees to use.
To help, we have 0% finance available on all electric car chargers for home, and £200 off a Wallbox Pulsar Plus charger installation and £100 off all other home EV charger installations.
