    Who’s in charge? Distribution of charging points for your electric vehicle

    According to government statistics, made available at the end of 2019, there is a huge disparity in the number of charging points available for drivers of electric vehicles in the UK.

    London and Scotland come out on top, whereas Yorkshire is the worst based upon points available per 100,000, population. Some areas have no place to charge at all.

    In order to meet the government target of zero carbon emissions by 2050, literally tens of millions of charging points will need to be installed in the intervening years!

    All-electric vehicle sales are on the increase, however, limited charging points and the relatively high cost of available cars means this still represents a small percentage of overall sales.

    Even with the incentives such as cheaper parking and possibly a green number plate scheme, the electric car market is looking a little flat.
