Melanie Shufflebotham, co-founder and COO at Zap-Map, said: “As the number of pure-electric cars on the road approaches half a million, a robust charging network is critical.

“Over the past few years there has been huge investment in high-powered chargers and it’s great to see many cities across the UK having a strong provision.

“There are of course a range of different needs when it comes to charging an EV, but continued investment in high-powered chargers for longer journeys is crucial as the number of EVs on the road continues to grow at pace.”
