London increases the number of electric car charging points

May 31st, 2011 - 
 

London increases the number of electric car charging points from 250 – the number of already existing charge points – to 1300 in the 2012. This means, London will have more charging points than gas stations and this is part of London’s wish: to be the electrical capital of Europe. You can find special places everywhere: near the subway, supermarkets and shopping centres, as well as residential streets.
Source London is the UK’s first citywide electric vehicle charging point network and membership scheme. Their aspiration is to have 100.000 electric automobiles on road and as much charge points as soon as possible. Also, the
future will bring an anual fee that consumers will pay and receive a card that allow them to charge vehicles at no additional cost at any charging points. Any vehicle that is pure electric or hybrid can be charged with this method (including vans, trucks, motorbikes or scooters). Here is a list of the charging points until now.
