According to new data, there are more electric car charging points than petrol stations in the UK.

The data showed that at the moment there are only 8,400 petrol stations across the country, compared with 9,300 electric vehicle charging locations.

As more people choose to make the switch to electric, more work has been done to improve the UK infrastructure.

In London, the Transport for London have installed over 1,000 charging points in the last year, and have also introduced an Ultra-Low Emission Zone to encourage drivers to opt for an EV.

Range anxiety has been one of the main concerns for drivers. However, this data shows that worrying about where you will get your next charge from won't be an issue anymore.

The government have invested millions into EV projects recently, with an additional £2.5 million being pumped into chargepoints alone.  

It is a major accomplishment for the UK and is another step towards meeting the net zero emissions target by 2050.

We're now even more excited about our very own electric Road Rover launching.
