Next Green Car Launches UK-wide EV Charging Point Map
With 752 points already mapped, Next Green Car’s Zap-Map is the most comprehensive map of electric car charging points in the UK. It believed that there will be between three and five thousand such points across the country by the end of the year, and Next Green Car will update the list on a weekly basis adding new charging points as they come on stream and ensuring that the map stays up-to-date.
In the beginning of the EV craze, stations were usually only found in the biggest cities, but this has changed, with the southerly point identified by Next Green Car is at the Nissan dealership in Exeter, the western frontier is also held by a Nissan dealership in Belfast.
“We were constantly researching on-street charge points for our visitors and trying to find an up-to-date list but we found that the data was fragmented or out of date, so we decided to build one ourselves,” said Dr. Ben Lane of Next Green Car.
“There is a good deal of talk about the lack of on-street charging points being a key constraint to the take-up of electric cars. Clearly more points need to be installed, but at least now, with Next Green Car’s Zap-Map, consumers and businesses can come to a single source to find a charging point on their route,” Melanie Shufflebotham of Next Green Car adds.
