How Do I Charge an Electric Vehicle?
Charging an electric vehicle has never been easier and improvements are being made all the time. Charging away from home
is becoming evermore convenient with public charging points at a number of strategic locations:
- Service Stations and Motorway Services (96% have rapid chargers)
- Hotels, Restaurants, Leisure Parks and Stations/Airports
- Shopping Centers, Retail Parks, High Streets and Car Parks
- Workplaces and Businesses
Some charge points called 'open access' are free, these tend to be offered by retailers and hotels. The majority of charge points belong
to a network provider and you will usually need a contactless payment card or mobile app.
Highways England want to ensure 95% of the road network has a rapid charge point every 20 miles.
