At home or work
Charging electric cars at home is often the most convenient and cost-effective way to recharge, particularly as most private vehicles are usually parked overnight. Home-base overnight charging, in most cases, is the cheapest time to recharge. Charging at work can be a convenient way for people to recharge their electric cars while they are parked during their working hours or for companies with electric fleets to provide employees an option for charging.
Shell’s NewMotion is one of Europe’s largest electric-vehicle charging providers. It operates more than 40,000 private electric charge points for homes and businesses in the Netherlands, Germany, France and the UK. Through NewMotion, Shell is developing more flexible solutions for electric vehicle drivers to charge at home or at work.
On the go
A growing number of Shell forecourts in the UK, the Netherlands and China are offering “Shell Recharge” fast charging service. This takes only around 30 minutes to fully charge. This service also provides electric car drivers a shorter option to just top up to get them to their destination.
In 2018, Shell began offering high-powered chargers in partnership with charging network operator IONITY. These will take less than 10 minutes to charge the latest next-generation electric vehicles, which will make them up to three times faster than any other charger currently available.
By installing around 500 of these high-powered fast chargers at 80 Shell stations next to major European highways, Shell is helping electric vehicle drivers to travel long distances confidently and with ease.
NewMotion offers customers a flexible way to access a wide charging network of public charge points. Using a single charge card, drivers can access a network of more than 80,000 public charge points across 28 European countries. These include Shell Recharge and IONITY charge points.
