The charging technology is one of the fastest commercially available in Britain and in 20 minutes it can top up a battery with a capacity of 200 miles (322 km). The traditional model of petrol stations for a net-zero carbon world has been updated by Gridserve and provides the trust people need to make the switch to electric transport today – a full decade ahead of the 2030 ban,”the traditional petrol station model for a net-zero carbon world and is delivering the confidence people need to make the switch to electric transport today – a full decade ahead of the 2030 ban” said Toddington Harper, its founder and chief executive officer.
Sales of battery-powered electric vehicles in the UK rose 122 per cent last month from a year ago, while hybrids were up 77 per cent, according to industry data.
In China and Europe, most of the EV charging infrastructure in the world has been developed. North America remains a distant third in the charging race, with much less robust public incentives and funding, although some hope that a pandemic stimulus package will catalyze a new construction surge.
