Every year, the number of electric vehicles on the road continues to grow. Here in the UK, there are now over 200k registered pure electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles on the roads, and this figure is expected to rise dramatically in the years to come with more and more manufacturers launching new EV models.
The government has announced plans to ban the sale of new diesel and petrol cars by 2040. The plan to move the U.K. towards zero emission motoring will require drivers to consider alternatives to conventional vehicles, one such alternative being Electric Vehicles (EVs).
One possible concern for EV drivers is where they can charge their vehicle when away from home. In response, the Department for Transport (DfT) has launched a scheme which aims to see at least eight rapid charging points installed on highways. This scheme also aims to expand charging infrastructure at motorway service areas over the next four years.
Electric Vehicles are powered by a battery which, when fully charged, can take you anywhere from 50 miles (in a Nissan Leaf) up to 300 miles (in a Tesla Model S). So, finding places where you can charge your car safely and securely whilst you’re out and about is essential if we want to adopt EVs into our lifestyle.
With the mainstream introduction of electric cars well underway, many organisations are being asked about installing a public charging point for customers, visitors or staff. This may seem daunting at first but there are a number of options available to help make this as simple as possible.
Gain a competitive advantage and attract new customers by installing commercial ev chargers at your business.
