Plug It In: London to see surge in ultra-rapid charging points for electric cars

London’s electric vehicle revolution was given a big boost on Thursday by plans for 100 new ultra-rapid charging points.

Mayor Sadiq Khan said City Hall and Transport for London would release land near the capital’s Red Route main road network to increase the number of “on the go” chargers for taxis and business and emergency vehicles.

He was due to speak on Thursday afternoon at the Evening Standard’s first Plug It In summit, bringing together experts, innovators and policy makers to lead the conversation on driving the capital’s switch to electric vehicles and develop a global “electric city” blueprint.
