Yorkshire’s Newest EV Charging Hub Opens at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet, York
As one of the largest UK providers of electric vehicle charging solutions and infrastructure for the UK’s net zero future, here at RAW we are pleased to announce the opening of an expansion and enhancement that quadruples the available power of the existing charging facilities at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet York, making it the largest EV charging hub in the region.
All eight dual chargers now available at the site have been upgraded to a maximum of 22kW with the ability for 16 vehicles to charge simultaneously at the Centre, making it one of the largest sites in Yorkshire. The fast chargers, offer a flexible option for all electric vehicle drivers, as the chargers are both cable attached and socketed, giving drivers the option to use the cable provided or to bring their own.
The newly expanded charging facility aides the growing demand for EV charging, as more drivers switch to electric vehicles ahead of the 2030 government ban of new petrol and diesel cars. Drivers can opt to charge their vehicle whilst shopping at the outlet, which has over 120 designer stores. Destination charging is an easy, affordable and reliable way for drivers to charge up whilst away from home.
Bruce Galliford, CEO, RAW Charging, said:
“The launch of our site at the shopping outlet in York shows the demand for destination charging. We are excited to continue working with McArthurGlen, supporting EV drivers to charge their vehicles away from home. We are continuing to rapidly grow our estate providing good value, well located destination charging throughout the UK.”
Paul Tyler, Centre Manager at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet York, said:
“We’re always excited to partner with brands that help us improve the experience of our guests when they visit our Centre. We know that more and more people are using electric or hybrid vehicles, so giving customers the option of reliable and affordable onsite charging during their visit was important to us and we’re looking forward to seeing them being used.”
