Auto Express responds to Tenfold expansion in chargepoints by 2030 as Government drives EV revolution

Published at: 24th March 2022

Auto Express editor-in-chief Steve Fowler comments “The Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Strategy news is a step in the right direction, but more needs to be done and quickly.

“Operators being mandated to provide real-time charging point status as well as ensuring drivers can pay contactlessly and compare pricing is a good move, but we’ve said for a long time that there also needs to be an independent regulator to oversee good practice.

“Additional charging points are much needed, but our concerns remain over the speed of progress – we’re not sure leaving it to local authorities is going to do enough to persuade people to go electric in the next couple of years.”
