William Bannister, CEO, MFG, said:
“As part of our £400 million investment plans, we are delighted to be opening this EV only forecourt that offers ultra-rapid charging on the Chester Road in Stretford which is a first for the North-West of the country. With 8 ultra-rapid charging bays, we believe this site will help lead the local transition to more sustainable Electric Vehicles.”
“MFG is committed to playing our part in ‘levelling up’ the charging infrastructure across the UK, beyond London and the South-East. We are investing heavily in ultra-rapid EV charging hubs alongside our existing fuel and convenience store network throughout the UK, including recent openings in Bristol and Birming ham and planned openings in Scotland and Wales this year. This is on top of a significant investment already by MFG in London which is leading the way in promoting cleaner motoring.”
