JLR installs 166 smart EV chargers at Gaydon centre

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has installed 166 smart charging outlets for electric vehicles at its Gaydon engineering centre for use by employees.

Research conducted by new Motion in 2018 shows that 40 per cent of electric car charging in Europe takes place at work. However, according to Zap Map, 75 per cent of EV users are unable to charge their cars at work in the UK.

In what JLR claims is the largest single installation of its kind in the UK, the first phase of workplace charging will provide 166 smart charging spaces before further chargers are installed at additional UK sites.

Charging points will also be installed in the visitors’ car park, so guests can take advantage of convenient fast charging.

The 7kW AC smart charging stations, supplied by NewMotion (a Shell company), can add 22 miles of range to an all–electric Jaguar I-PACE every hour and 176 miles in total during an eight-hour day. The stations are cloud-connected and integrated with the NewMotion public charging network, so employees can charge at stations across Europe using a single card. Users can also monitor and track charging throughout the day with a smartphone app.

Jaguar Land Rover sources 100 per cent renewable electricity for its UK facilities. Its electricity supply is backed by Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGO), meaning a proportion of EDF Energy’s renewable energy is ring-fenced for the company. In this case, the REGO scheme certifies that Jaguar Land Rover’s entire supply comes from renewable generation.
