Membury Services ranked 10th in UK for electric vehicle chargers

By Barrie Hudson - 3 October 2023


The M4 service station nearest to Swindon has 18 electric vehicle chargers according to the results of a new survey.

Electric vehicle specialist DriveElectric says this puts Membury in 10th place for chargers among the more than 100 motorway services across the UK.
Exeter came top with 28, followed by Rugby with 24, Hilton Park with 21 and Reading and Warwick with 20 each.
DriveElectric says on its website: "There are over 100 motorway service stations in the UK, which are used day and night by drivers across the country. 
"Everyone has used a service station at some point, and some even have their favourite place to stop on a long drive.
"The best service stations have everything you need for a motorway journey - from food and drink to shops and children’s play areas. But what about electric vehicle charging points?
"With the rise in popularity of electric car leasing and electric van leasing, most service stations in the UK have some form of electric vehicle charging. However, the last thing you want to do is wait in line to use a slow charger instead of making progress on your route.
"That’s why we analysed every motorway service station in the UK to find the ultimate place to stop for electric vehicle drivers. 
"We looked at the number of charging devices, including ultra-rapid chargers and Tesla chargers, the average cost of charging, and amenities at service stations across the nation to reveal the best EV service station."
