Jaguar has supported the opening of one of Europe’s largest electric vehicle charging hubs that is located close to several of its manufacturing and office facilities.

The hub, located at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham, will contain 180 charging points that consist of 16 rapid 300kW DC chargers serving 30 bays and 150 7kW AC charging points. The facility is powered by renewable energy sources including a solar panel canopy.

During August, a fleet of 32 Jaguar I-Paces were simultaneously used at the facility to test the infrastructure in terms of power distribution, rapid charging and vehicle connection.

The NEC hub is available in addition to over 500,000 chargers across UK and Europe that can be accessed through the Jaguar Charging app.

“At Jaguar, we are moving closer to becoming an all-electric car company and a leader in the provision of client-centred solutions that enable convenient and fast charging. We are therefore pleased to work with The EV Network on a project that will significantly improve electric vehicle public charging availability at the heart of the Midlands motorway network and close to several of our facilities,” said Rawdon Glover, Managing Director, Jaguar.
