EV Charging Point Map
Did you know we are soon to have electric vehicles (EVs) charging points in our town centre, at Southampton Street car park?
For the first time ever, EVs are predicted to outsell diesel cars in the UK this year, according to SMMT (one of the largest trade bodies in the UK). And whilst the cost of EVs steadily drops and public charging more widespread, ‘range anxiety’ (the fear of running out of charge on the road) still holds many people back from switching to EVs.
This data-rich and fully interactive map will help you find all the public charging stations nearest to you – https://www.autotrader.co.uk/cars/electric/charging-points/
