The Fulham Shell charging hub is now entirely dedicated to electric vehicles, and can simultaneously accommodate nine cars, with fast charging stations of a power of 175 kW

. According to Shell, they would make it possible to recharge compatible models up to 80% of their capacity, in just about 10 minutes.
