Charging forward: Creating a world-class UK charging network

The shift to battery electric cars in the UK is accelerating with more than one in 10 sales in 2020. Only new cars with a significant electric range can be sold in the UK from 2030 and only zero emission vehicles from 2035. The shift to an entire fleet of BEVs will not be complete until around 2050, but creating a UK-wide, convenient, affordable charging network is a key part of the delivery plan and this report and supporting study detail a roadmap to create a world-class charging network. T&E has also built an online tool that maps the number of electric vehicles registered in each local authority in the UK and the number of chargers located there.
