Poll Finds 40% of Brits Will Consider Buying an Electric Vehicle in the Next 5 Years; 72% Have Never Seen a Public Charger
A full 62% of respondents stated that the lack of charging stations make electric vehicles seem impractical and 72% claim to have never seen a public charger.
The UK is indeed home to some 3,000 public charge points, but half of those surveyed say they have no clue where those chargers are.
This lack of knowledge is alarming and it says to us that educating the general public should still be the number one priority.
