Pod Point began working with Lidl GB in 2019.

Rhys-Teri at the Hayes Uxbridge Road store in West London was the 100th 50kW rapid charger to go live at the retailer, which continues to be the cheapest national supermarket chain for PAYG rapid charging.

Pod Point Founder & CEO, Erik Fairbairn, said:

When most people think of Lidl, they probably think of food and drink. However, the fact is that Lidl has made an enormous contribution to rapid charging infrastructure in Great Britain, as this significant milestone shows. Currently 2.5 out of every 100 rapid chargers in the UK can be found at Lidl stores, and there are many more in the pipeline.

In 2019, Pod Point began working with Lidl GB to help customers have access to solutions that will support them in their ambition to lead more sustainable lives, and help progress EV adoption, by offering rapid charging at 300 stores by 2022, representing a total investment in EV charging infrastructure of over £25 million.

Since then, a further 50 stores have been added to its plan, which means rapid chargers supplied by Pod Point will be available in over a third of Great Britain Lidl stores.

Chief Development Officer for Lidl GB, Alan Barry, commented:

We are committed to empowering our customers to make the right decisions for their lifestyle and are delighted to have reached this important milestone of bringing rapid charging for Electric Vehicles to 100 of our stores. We look forward to delivering this service to even more local areas in the near future as we continue with our investment.
