A NEW 14-charger electric vehicle superhub has opened at Syon Park, aimed at commuters and local drivers.

The rapid-charging hub is in the grounds of the stately home, famous for its backdrop in TV dramas like Bridgerton.

It is three miles from the M4 and close to Heathrow, along the A316 which runs from London to the M3.

Drivers on the InstaVolt network can enjoy Syon House and Gardens, including its Courtyard Restaurant, while their vehicles re-charge.

Adrian Keen, InstaVolt’s CEO, said:“Our philosophy is to create hubs where people can stop and recharge their EVs while at the same time relax and recharge themselves.”
