Manheim adds 30 EV chargers at Bruntingthorpe

Manheim has partnered with Pod Point to add 30 electric vehicle chargers at its Bruntingthorpe site.

Manheim parent company Cox Automotive said it has invested more than £100,000 in creating the EV Charging Centre, which it said is capable of charging around 800 customer vehicles a week.

The business said adding the chargers allows charging on site for current EV customers and sales, but will also help future proof the location for further expansion.

The new MVS Bruntingthorpe EV Charging Centre features 30, 7kW (single phase) Twin Chargers, as well as a 50kW Velocity Charger for rapid charging.

Sam Watkins, commercial director, Manheim Vehicle Services, said: “As EVs become more prevalent across the UK, we have invested in onsite charging technology to align with the needs of our customers.

"The creation of an EV Charging Centre demonstrates our commitment to evolving vehicle technologies, futureproofing our sites, and ensuring customers’ needs are met.”

The MVS Bruntingthorpe EV Charging Centre will be available for customers to use on a pre-booked basis, with individual billing agreements and support from the MVS team on site.
