Electric car sales accelerating faster than charge point installations

• Some 4,100 charge points installed to 212k plug-in car registrations this year • By the end of 2019 there were 11 plug-in vehicles to every public charging device
REGENT STREET, U.K. - Dec. 19, 2021 - PRLog -- Demand for electrified cars is not being matched by the growth of the public charging network, according to a new report out this week.

The nation's infrastructure is failing to keep pace with EV sales a decade before the Government bans the sale of new petrol and diesel cars, analysis by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders shows.

So far this year (to the end of September), a total of 4,109 new standard public charge points have been installed - that compares to 212,181 plug-in car registrations - including both fully-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

The government plan to make all cars electric could be in jeopardy if this shortfall is not rectified. After all, what would be the point in buying an electric car now if it cannot be charged easily.

There are quite a few companies now that have build apps which can show motorists where the nearest chargepoint is and if it is working. All the information is displayed on their mobile phone.

The lack of chargepoints is slowing the rate of electric car sales. This needs to be addressed now.
