Costa fuels transition to net-zero with InstaVolt EV charge point partnership

Costa Coffee, and electric vehicle charge point network, InstaVolt, are today announcing a partnership to install rapid EV chargers at up to 200 Costa Coffee Drive-Thru sites across the UK. The partnership will see InstaVolt’s state-of-the-art rapid chargers placed at new and existing stores, making it quick and easy for drivers to recharge their EVs while refuelling with their favourite Costa coffee.

These efforts will increase the accessibility of rapid charging technology, delivering charging speeds of up to 120kW to EV owners across the UK. InstaVolt’s ‘open charger’ model enables anyone who visits any participating Costa Coffee Drive-Thru site to use its charging points on a pay-as-you-go basis, boosting visibility and ease of charging – often seen as a stumbling block to the adoption of EVs amongst consumers.

Building on Costa Coffee’s existing network of 176 EV charging points at selected locations across the UK, the partnership will further drive the brand’s efforts to support consumers in reducing carbon emissions. Having become a founding signatory to the British Retail Consortium’s Climate Action Roadmap in 2020, the collaboration will also help Costa Coffee contribute to the retail sector’s ambition to achieve Net Zero by 2040 and support consumers as they try to live lower carbon lifestyles.
