NewMotion will partner with Aldi to provide electric vehicle (EV) charging points at all new Aldi store locations across the UK, allowing customers to charge up their EVs whilst shopping.

This will add 140 chargers to the UK public network, with the potential of more to follow to match rising customer demand. Aldi will also install charge points at its headquarters in Atherstone to encourage and support the uptake of sustainable driving.

The NewMotion charge points will support charging speeds of up 22 kW, significantly higher than the 7kW chargers generally available. This will ensure Aldi’s EV infrastructure is future-proofed to accommodate newer EV models that will have bigger battery sizes and support greater charging speeds.
