Ultra-rapid EV charger network MFG EV Power has joined Zap-Pay, the charging payment service from Zap-Map.

MFG EV Power, owned by Motor Fuel Group, has more than 200 rapid and ultra-rapid chargers at service stations across the UK, and plans to have 3,000 ultra-rapid devices by 2030.

It is the sixth charging network to join Zap-Pay, following Osprey, ESB Energy, Char.gy, GeniePoint, and Mer.

The MFG deal means there are now more than 3,000 UK chargers compatible with Zap-Pay, and more announcements are set to follow.

Zap-Map commercial director Alex Earl said: “I’m delighted to see the MFG EV Power network come online with Zap-Pay. Not only is MFG a fantastic addition to the Zap-Pay partner network, but as a dynamic and expanding network with strategically placed ultra-rapid charge points, one that will make charging EVs that much easier for Zap-Map users.

“With Zap-Pay usage already increasing, we’re expecting to see this trend accelerate now that MFG EV Power is live on Zap-Pay.”

MFG EV director Ed Chadwick said: “At MFG we are committed to making the charging experience as simple and seamless as possible.  All our chargers are contactless card payment enabled, and with the addition of Zap-Pay we are pleased to add more convenient payment methods for drivers, particularly as they mix and match across networks.

“We have an incredibly exciting pipeline of site openings for 2022 and look forward to adding those chargers to the Zap-Pay network.”
