A new electric charging network could eventually see taxis, cars, and other electric vehicles recharged to a range of up to 220 miles in 10 minutes.
There is however a downside to this latest technological advancement, there isn't an electric vehicle on the road with a battery that is able to cope with the 350kw charge rate.
The IONITY charging network is to be rolled out across the UK at selected sites as well as other sites across Europe.
IONITY, who are partnered with Tritium, have identified 120 sites where the chargers will be situated. The company have also made a deal with Shell, with a view to installing 500 rapid charging points across 80 forecourts in Europe by 2020, with 44 destined to be installed in the UK.
David Finn, CEO, and co-founder of Tritium told Auto Express: “These chargers will soon be ubiquitous along the highways of Europe and ensure that the increasing number of EV owners across the continent will be able to drive whenever and wherever they want."
It is anticipated that drivers will be charged a £7 fee every time they use the charge point.
