Electric vehicle chargingAs part of our commitment to renewable energy, we are currently installing electric vehicle rapid charging points across all of our UK stores to complement the existing normal (or slow charge) points.
We are working with our sustainability partners, car manufacturer Nissan and green energy provider Ecotricity, to introduce the dedicated rapid charging points in all of our car parks so customers can confidently charge their vehicles while shopping in store.
Developed by Nissan, the rapid charger units can recharge an electric vehicle, such as the 100% electric Nissan LEAF, from empty to 80% full in just thirty minutes and IKEA will be the first major retailer in the UK to make them available to its customers.
The charging points will be free for all customers to use and there’ll be no charge for the 100% sustainably sourced green electricity from Ecotricity.
All IKEA UK stores now have rapid-chargers and some have both rapid-chargers and combined chargers. You can view a map to find out where these are available around the country here.
