Electric vehicle charging points

There are five electric vehicle charging points in Basingstoke Town Centre. These are located in Central, Churchill Way, Eastlands and Parklands Car Parks.

Please see the Town Centre Car Parks map for their locations.

Central Car Park, Basingstoke

The charging point in Central Car Park is a 'rapid' charge point and will charge a car from zero to 80% in approximately 30 minutes. Two spaces have been allocated for electric vehicles and users will be able to park their cars free of charge for up to a maximum of 1 hour, after which time the vehicle must be moved out of the charging bay and into a standard pay and display space. A pay and display ticket must be displayed in your car on arrival.

Users will need to download an ‘app’ or request a Charge Card/Key (this is free) and set up an account with New Motion to use the charging point.

The charging point has CHAdeMO (50kw), CCS (50kw) and Type 2 (43kw) connectors, which are suitable for most electric vehicles.
