Lidl announces rapid electric vehicle charger installation programme

Lidl has committed to installing rapid electric vehicle chargers at all of its new stores.

The supermarket will also be making charging points available at existing Lidl stores that are able to accommodate the chargers in their car parks. This means that that rapid charging points will become operational at over 300 Lidl stores over the next three years.

Lidl will be investing over £25 million in the project.

Ingo Fischer, chief development officer for Lidl GB, said: “Not only will our customers be able to charge their electric cars in 50 minutess – less time than it takes to do a big shop – they will be able to do it for the best price on the market. It is our hope that, through this significant investment, we will enable easier access to charging points, ultimately helping more households switch to electric vehicles.”

Operated by Pod Point, the points can be used via the company’s Open Charge mobile app. Chargers will have their own marked parking bays for use, and stores with charge points can be viewed via the Lidl app or on Zap-Map and Pod Point’s maps, as and when they are rolled out.

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