Auto Windscreens introduce EV charging points

Auto Windscreens, working with ChargedEV, has become the first UK provider of vehicle glass repairs and replacements to introduce electric vehicle (EV) charging points across its network.

Building on its green credentials, the company’s Chesterfield headquarters is now fitted with three 7.4kW Dual Charging Points. Several more locations nationwide will go ‘live’ with the equipment over the next few weeks, including the flagship Fitting Hub in Milton Keynes.

Shaun Atton, Auto Windscreens’ fleet manager, said, ‘ChargedEV approached us and offered an EV charging solution that we felt would work effectively across our expanding fitting hub network. The charge points will be available for customer use and support our plans to introduce more electric and hybrid vehicles to our fleet, reducing our carbon footprint.’

Auto Windscreens recently announced the addition of a fully electric plug-in vehicle, a Citroen Berlingo, to its fleet. This is being used by its rapid response technician team, in and around London.

The nationwide installation is currently in progress with sites in Cardiff, Coventry, Crayford, Leeds, Leicester and Tunbridge Wells all being looked at presently.
