Circle K has launched its new high-powered electric vehicle charging network in association with IONITY a high-power charging provider.
“As we all come together in a concerted effort to tackle climate change and reduce our carbon emissions, there will be an increased demand for access to convenient fast charging points across the country," Incoming Circle K Ireland Managing Director Gordon Lawlor commented.
"In line with our ambition to make our customers lives a little easier every day, Circle K has already started on its journey to meet this demand and we want to play our role in facilitating a smooth transition to electric vehicle usage."
More to Come
The IONITY high-powered charger has also been installed in Circle K Cashel in Tipperary with four more IONITY high powered charging stations set to be introduced over the next few months at key strategic motorway locations at Circle K Athlone on the M6, Circle K Kill South on the M7, Circle K Kill North on the N7, Circle K City North on the M1.
All charge stations will feature up to six high speed EV charge points, each with a 350kW of charging capacity.
“We are continuing to extend the IONITY High Power Charging network, with stations like Gorey which we believe will make a significant contribution to the take up of electrical vehicles across Europe," Paul Entwistle, IONITY media spokesperson added:
"It is particularly refreshing working with Circle K who have clearly understood what EV drivers want.”
