22.12.2016 - Mick George are ‘charging’ ahead
The last three years have seen a remarkable surge in demand for electric and hybrid vehicles in the UK, with new registrations of plug-in cars having increased from 3,500 in 2013 to more than 80,000 by December 2016, seeing the alternative fueled and low emission vehicle market outperform the wider transport industry.
There are numerous underlying factors behind that inflation, predominantly due to general environmental awareness and technological developments, which have subsequently permitted a more desirable offering.
On the face of it the number of models and attributed specifications have improved, but that is only advantageous if the essential logistics that powers this market has also enhanced. And that is certainly the case; the sheer volume of Electric Vehicle charging points and the differing locations continues to expand rapidly.
