There Are Now More Electric Car Charging Points Than Petrol Stations In The UK

UK’s most picturesque charging locations revealed demonstrating the booming public chargepoint network

To showcase the extensiveness of the UK electric vehicle charging network, Go Ultra Low, the government and industry campaign to promote the uptake of electric vehicles, has commissioned a series of photographs of chargepoints across the UK in picturesque locations. Click here to see the full story.

Poppy Welch, Head of Go Ultra Low, said: “From a charging perspective, there has never been a better time to be an EV owner in the UK. Government and private investment in the network in recent years has seen an impressive rise in chargepoint numbers, with a mix of types and providers across the length and breadth of the UK. Many motorists think chargepoints are just found in urban areas like carparks in towns and cities, however, this simply isn’t the case, so we thought the best way to demonstrate this is to show people. These images showcase the significant expansion in charging infrastructure highlighting the hidden gems that exist in the UK’s charging network.”
