It is predicted that electric vehicles will make up 32% of global sales of new cars however the UK government’s target is for at least 50% and as many as 70% of new car sales before 2030 and they have announced that from 2030 you will no longer be able to buy a new petrol- or diesel-powered vehicle.
The UK’s publicly available electric vehicle charging locations continued to grow steadily with over 26,500 charging points, providing over 45,000 connectors.
All these facilities charge for you to “fill-up” and the cost can be expensive, especially if you use one of the rapid-charger units, so having a home based EV charger is the better option as it is much cheaper. Of course, it is much cheaper still if have your own solar panels, and a battery storage facility then you could be driving for free.
