Chargemaster has revealed its new UltraCharger, a rapid charger for electric vehicles, which modernises electric vehicle charging through a number of innovations.
Unveiled at leading low-carbon show LCV2015 on 9 September by Anna Soubry, Minister for Small Business, Industry and Enterprise, the UltraCharger promises to revolutionise electric vehicle charging.

Chargemaster announces new membership scheme with low-cost tariff and free loan of BMW i8 and Tesla models
Chargemaster, the largest operator of electric vehicle charging points in the UK, has confirmed a new subscription scheme called POLAR Plus, which will also offer members the chance to borrow the latest luxury electric cars.
The expanding POLAR London and POLAR national network of over 4,000 charging points will be available to any electric motorist for a monthly subscription of just £7.85 - similar to popular streaming services Netflix or Amazon Instant - and the first six months’ subscription is free.
Over 80% of the POLAR Plus charging points are free to use, with remaining points charged at the equivalent of 9p per unit of electricity* - typically less than the cost of charging at home. A pay-as-you-go instant access rate will also be available for non-members. These new tariffs make a significant difference for EV drivers especially on rapid chargers where members can charge an electric car to 80% capacity in around 20 minutes in all POLAR rapid locations at a cost of about £2 when previously it would cost around £6.
The free wall-box is part of a partnership between Renault and the British telematics company Chargemaster. Commenting on the partnership, David Martell, Chargemaster CEO, said: "We are delighted to be Renault's official charging partner in the UK. As government figures show, plug-in car sales are increasing as more and more motorists choose to reduce their emissions and their running costs.
" The wall-box allows a full charge from zero to 100 per cent full in three to four hours, and is weatherproof so can be installed indoors or outside, with a choice of tethered or socketed cables. The wall-box provides sufficient range for a ZOE to travel up to 149 miles on the official NEDC cycle - comfortably more than most electric vehicle owners' daily mileage. The charger is protected by key controlled access and is covered by a four-year warranty - matching the vehicle manufacturer cover.
Cenex, the Loughborough-based Centre of Excellence for Low Carbon and Fuel Cell Technologies, has chosen Chargemaster, the largest UK supplier and operator of chargepoints, to run the Plugged-in Midlands Network (PiM) following a competitive selection process.
The Plugged-in Midlands estate of more than 870 chargepoints will be merged with Chargemaster’s POLAR network, which already comprises over 4,000 chargepoints across the country. The addition of the PiM chargepoints to the extensive POLAR network will make EV motoring even easier across the UK.
Chargemaster, the largest operator of electric vehicle charging points in the UK, has announced significant expansion in its POLAR charging point network. The expansion creates total of 6,000 POLAR charging points across UK

Chargemaster, the UK’s largest supplier and operator of electric vehicle charging points, has acquired GB Electrical, a specialist national contractor that has expanded into the installation of charging points across the country over the past two years.
GB Electrical employs approximately 70 specialist staff nationwide and this will grow following the acquisition, in line with the expansion of the electric vehicle charging point market. It has vast experience in installing anything from domestic installations to multi standard rapid chargers.
The Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) has confirmed that its Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) will finish at the end of the year, but that it will honour any deals until that date, which is yet to be confirmed.
The confirmation came after the BVRLA sought assurances from OLEV, following growing uncertainty within the leasing sector, which had led a number of companies to remove the £5,000 grant from their quotation systems.
Chargemaster, the UK’s largest supplier of electric vehicle charging equipment, has completed the installation of 156 charging points at 71 fire stations and five other Brigade sites across London.
The charging points have been installed to support the London Fire Brigade’s growing fleet of electric support vehicles and 18 of the points in 9 locations are also available for public use.
The global Electric Vehicle Charging market forecasts growth from more than one million units in 2014 to more than 12.7million units in 2020, according to a new report by IHS Automotive. The report investigates the current and future regional deployments of EV charging stations and identifies factors for future growth.
Families could cut as much as 65 percent off monthly fuel bills by making the switch to an electric car according to a recent study by Nissan. This equates to a saving of £22 each month, for the average UK family. Equivalent to a family meal, a trip to the cinema or new clothes; the extra cash may well tip the balance when it comes to picking the next family car. The UK families surveyed rated low running costs and safety as the top priorities when selecting a family car; far ahead of considerations such as comfort or performance.
