Waiting 45 minutes to charge your car? You might as well look at something pretty.
There’s nothing stopping you travelling the country in an electric car, especially with charging infrastructure popping up in all sorts of places.
While those in fossil-fuelled cars will be stopping at grubby petrol stations, spending £60 or so on fuel and an extra £10 on a coffee and Ginsters pie, EV owners can relax in some of the most scenic locations in the country.
“From a charging perspective, there has never been a better time to be an EV owner in the UK,” explains Poppy Welch, head of Go Ultra Low. “Government and private investment in the network in recent years has seen an impressive rise in chargepoint numbers, with a mix of types and providers across the length and breadth of the UK.
“Many motorists think chargepoints are just found in urban areas like car parks in towns and cities, however, this simply isn’t the case, so we thought the best way to demonstrate this is to show people.”
There are now close to 24,000 chargepoint connectors at more than 8,000 locations across the UK, but here are what must be the most beautiful.
