With the rise of Tesla over recent years, government policies and an eco-friendly trend of cars, electric vehicles have been all the rage over the last 5 years. When walking down the street it is very uncommon nowadays that you won’t encounter a hybrid or fully electric car, as manufacturers are pushing electric vehicles to the front of showrooms and all over advertisement campaigns to appeal to this modern, eco-friendly car market. But one of the biggest problems with owning an electrical car is that charge points are few and far between in some areas, as if you own an electric car and you live deep into the British countryside you will considerably struggle to find places to charge your car compared to someone living in a metropolitan area of the country.
In November of 2018 Tesco and VW announced plans to place more electric charging points around Tesco stores and petrol stations, as every year for the past 5 years there has been at least a 40% increase from the year before in electric car sales, as from in 2015 68% more people bought an electric vehicle than they did in 2014. This is statistical proof that the electric car market will be firmly on the rise for at least the next decade and beyond due to its pattern of exponential growth.
Electric charging points for cars are starting to increase though as the market is ballooning with there being a growing demand for them, as day by day specific electrical charge points are being added around the country and can now be seen at local service stations, which is perfect as you can grab a bite to eat and take a break from the road to regain concentration and energy all while your car if recharging and refuelling outside.
Many businesses and conglomerates are starting to invest in electric charging points as it is very convenient for customers to shop while their car is charging, and this is starting to become a trend of this busy modern on-the-go world. As the market for electric cars continues to grow by the day, more convenient charging locations based around city centres are building built to keep up with the rise of electric cars.
