Shortage of charging points may hit UK’s green ambition and switch to electric vehicles

Better infrastructure is needed to ensure the future of electric vehicles in the UK, and cities need to put more resources into working with commercial fleets.

Those were the findings from a new report from smart parking tech firm AppyWay, which has shown that fleets in the form of company cars, taxis, car shares and logistical vehicles now account for close to 60% of new vehicles registered in the UK.

Alongside these, some 88% of fleets are looking to buy electric cars, but lack of significant networks of charging points threatens to stall progress.
