Revel Unveils Revolutionary EV Charging Hub in LIC: Paving the Way for Sustainable Urban Mobility

Revel, a trailblazer in electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure and rideshare services, has ushered in a new era of sustainable transportation with the unveiling of its LIC Superhub in Queens. This cutting-edge fast-charging station, equipped with 14 ultrafast plugs, promises to revolutionize the EV charging experience, providing vehicles with 100 miles of range in just 10 minutes.



Situated within the accessory garage of the JACX at 28-17 Jackson Avenue, the LIC Superhub represents a beacon of progress and innovation in Long Island City. Its strategic location near the intersection of Queens Boulevard and Jackson Avenue, as well as its proximity to the Taxi & Limousine Commission's main driver support center, makes it a valuable asset for New York's taxi and rideshare drivers transitioning to electric vehicles.

The inauguration of the LIC Superhub was marked by a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by notable figures including Queens Borough President Donovan Richards and Taxi & Limousine Commissioner David Do. Their presence underscored the significance of this milestone in advancing Queens' sustainability goals and promoting carbon neutrality in the borough.


Frank Reig, Co-Founder & CEO of Revel, emphasized the company's commitment to expanding public fast charging infrastructure, particularly for TLC-licensed drivers. By making the transition to zero-emission electric vehicles easier and more accessible, Revel is driving forward the city's green transportation initiatives.

Queens Borough President Donovan Richards expressed his excitement about the LIC Superhub, heralding it as a catalyst for Queens' journey towards becoming a hub of sustainability and environmental resilience. With initiatives like the Champlain Hudson Power Express and net-zero communities like Arverne East, Queens is poised to lead the charge in combating climate change.


Taxi & Limousine Commissioner David Do lauded Revel's investment in the LIC Superhub, highlighting its role in supporting the city's Green Rides initiative. By strategically locating charging infrastructure near areas where TLC drivers work and live, Revel is contributing to a cleaner, healthier, and more accessible city for all.

Revel's commitment to sustainability is further exemplified by the LIC Superhub's features, including 24/7 accessibility, no parking fees, and compatibility with CCS and NACS plug standards. With plans to expand its public fast charging network to more than 300 plugs across New York City, including two 60-plug Superhubs, Revel is spearheading the EV revolution in the Western Hemisphere.


The LIC Superhub represents a welcome addition to Queens' landscape, addressing the need for adequate charging infrastructure in the borough. As Thomas J. Grech, President and CEO of the Queens Chamber of Commerce, aptly puts it, Revel's investment in the LIC Superhub is vital to the economic well-being of Queens' taxi and rideshare drivers.

In collaboration with partners like Con Edison and Empire Clean Cities, Revel is paving the way for a cleaner, greener future for all New Yorkers. By providing ultrafast charging stations that are accessible to any EV, Revel is helping to realize Mayor Adams's goal of electrifying the for-hire vehicle sector by 2030.


The LIC Superhub stands as a testament to the power of innovation and collaboration in advancing sustainable transportation. As New York City accelerates towards a clean energy future, Revel's LIC Superhub serves as a beacon of hope, inspiring communities to embrace electric mobility and build a more sustainable tomorrow.
