What Car? Electric Car Charging Survey
Tell us what you think of Britain’s public car charging companies so we can reveal the best and worst places to charge up...
As more people switch to electric cars, it’s vital that there’s the right infrastructure to charge them up quickly and easily. After all, with only a quarter of drivers in the UK having access to a drive to allow them to do home charging, a growing number of people will rely on the public car-charging network.
The good news is that the number of public chargers is increasing every day. There are currently nearly 24,000 charging units providing more than 40,000 charge points. The cost of charging up varies greatly between providers, though, as does the speed at which units will replenish batteries. Many charging providers also require customers to download an app or register online before they can use a charge point.
To help you choose the best public charger, we’ve launched the What Car? EV Public Charger Survey. If you’ve used a public charger recently, we want to know if it was easy to use, good value for money and in good working order or broken, plus whether the whole process was overly complicated.
We’ll use the information you give us to rate public charging companies so you can be confident that you're picking the best one when you next charge up.
