Shell Recharge is our rapid, renewable and reliable electric vehicle charging network.

Growing a rapid and ultra-rapid charging network across the UK

We now have over 100 Shell Recharge electric vehicle charging points on our forecourts in the UK and we aim to have 200 Shell Recharge points on our forecourts by the end of 2021. We also have plans to grow our EV charging network to over 5,000 EV charge points on forecourts and in new locations by 2025.

While waiting for your vehicle to charge, why not take advantage of our convenient retail offering by picking up a Costa Coffee, or a snack from our new Jamie Oliver deli by Shell range.

108 charge points in the UK

Our network of on-forecourt charging points in the United Kingdom currently numbers at over 100 and is growing every month. Our aim is to install 200 charge points (both 50kW and 150kW) on forecourts by the end of 20211.

65 rapid charge points

Our rapid charge points will typically provide a 0-80% charge in approximately 30 minutes, depending on the electric vehicle model2. Just enough time to recharge yourself with a Costa coffee or snack from our Jamie Oliver deli by Shell range.

Detail 3

43 ultra-rapid charge points

Our ultra-rapid chargers can deliver a 0-80% charge up to three times faster than our rapid 50kW charge points. Cars that are able to take advantage of the full speed offered by the 150kW charger generally have larger batteries and so require a faster charge to fill the battery in similar amounts of time².

We've got a great network already established across London to help keep your EV topped up when you’re in the capital. We are also converting a central London conventional fuels service station into an electric vehicle charging hub that will feature up to 10 high powered, 150kW charge points.
