Until recently if you asked the average person what their thoughts were regarding the move to Electric Vehicles, range anxiety would be somewhere at the top of the list.
The most recognisable style of Electric Vehicle Charger has been around for years in small numbers on local streets and in parking bays – the Public / On-Street Charger. Now that the EV industry is taking a sharp upturn, we are seeing companies install them in greater numbers to keep up with the changing requirements of their employees and visitors.
This week, Google announced that it’s map feature will now show EV Charging Stations across the world including information and imagery about each point. Consumer demand has driven this enhancement as the market enters a dynamic phase in EV adoption.
With almost 300,000 vehicles sold since its introduction, the Nissan Leaf is the world’s best selling Electric Vehicle. It managed to secure that position at the time by introducing the longest single charging range (100+ miles), however in recent years car makers have introduced charge distances of more than double this length - a key selling point for the driving public.
