A map of e-charging points has been created for electric car owners, and 20 streets across Reading have been pinpointed.

With electric vehicle ownership increasing, the Department for Transport (DfT) has announced thousands of new charging points across the country. 

In a recent study by MoneySupermarket it was shown that the Berkshire-based town has the highest number of insurance enquiries for EVs than anywhere else in the UK, at 2,016 per 100,000 people in the town in the past year.

However with fewer than 9,000 public EV charging devices installed in the UK last year it has led to claims that the infrastructure is not keep up with the demands.

Transport minister Jesse Norman said: “The Government is giving local authorities across England additional help today to energise their chargepoint roll-out plans.

“Today’s commitment will lead to thousands of new chargers being installed, and plans for tens of thousands extra in due course, so that more people than ever can make the transition to using EVs.”
