This will see the number of fast charge points in Allstar’s network increase to over 6,000, taking the total number of charge points accessible through the Allstar network to over 11,000 at more than 4,000 locations across the UK, of which 94 percent of chargers are fast, rapid, and ultra-rapid. 

Global sales of EVs are set to surge to yet another record this year, according to the IEA, with sales expected to grow by another 35 percent from 2022. According to Allstar’s partner Zapmap, the number of UK EVs registered in 2023 so far is already ~18 percent higher than for the whole of 2022. 

As this uptake of EVs in the UK rapidly increases, it is vital that charging infrastructure and payment solutions continue to keep pace with the growing demand to enable drivers to tap and charge with ease and get back on the road. 

Fastned was ranked the best joint charge point operator in the UK in 2022, according to users of Zapmap, the UK’s leading charge point mapping service. It recently installed its 14th station in the UK in East Anglia, featuring six 300kW charging bays, with more in the pipeline for this year. 

The company boasts over 265 stations across the UK and mainland Europe, with more than 1,300 charge points capable of adding up to 300 miles of range in just 20 minutes. All of Fastned’s chargers are powered by solar and wind renewable energy, supported by solar panels installed on the canopies of its charging stations, making them a sustainable choice for drivers. 

“We’re excited to partner with Fastned to expand our EV charging network” said Tom Rowlands, FLEETCOR Managing Director, Global EV Solutions (which includes the UK). “The company is a leading player in the European fast charging market, and their high-powered chargers will provide our drivers with even more convenient and reliable charging options across the UK.” 

The deal with Fastned follows Allstar’s recent partnerships with EVYVE, Fuuse and InstaVolt, with more networks soon to be added.
