Electric Vehicle battery range explored
The new availability of long-range electric cars has put the onus back on the UK’s charging infrastructure to supply a dependable, clean, low-cost energy source for motorists. This is something GRIDSERVE is actively working to change with straightforward and sustainable charging solutions available through the GRIDSERVE Electric Forecourt®, Electric Hub® and Electric Highway network. To complement this infrastructure, we also offer an amazing EV leasing service.
