Lidl to install ‘rapid’ EV chargers at 300 stores by 2022

Discount supermarket chain Lidl has announced £25 million plans to roll out fast-chargers at more than 300 stores – around one third of its network – over the next three years, as

part of its commitment to install rapid EV charging facilities at all of its new stores.

It will also retrofit charging points into a number of existing stores – adding to the existing 40 chargers already installed at its sites – and claims the rapid charger tariff will offer the best value on the market at 23p per kWh.

Lidl is set to open over 50 new stores across England, Scotland and Wales in 2019.
