Electric Vehicle Charging

Electric Vehicle Charging

 

Following the Government statement in July 2017 that the UK will ban the sale of all petrol & diesel cars & vans by 2040, it is inevitable that the use of electric vehicle charging will rise over the coming years.

Electric vehicle sales in the UK increased by 39% in 2016 compared to 2015, with over 100,000 EV’s registered on the road & estimate that this number could rise to 500,000 by 2020. With legislation & environmental concerns, commercial vehicle manufacturers will also be forced to develop lower emission vehicles. Many of these vehicles will be powered by an electric cell or a combination of electric cell & petrol engine (Hybrid) which will require electric vehicle charging stations to be installed. There has been an increase in electric powered commercial vehicles launched in the UK, these range from small vans through to 26 tonne lorries with this increase we will see a rise in fleet EV charging in the UK.
