The UK's electric vehicle charging infrastructure will keep up with increased demand for the technology, says Chargemaster.
The EV charging infrastructure provider forecasts that the UK's electric car parc could grow to around 3 million by 2025, 8 million by 2030, 15 million by 2035 and 25 million by 2040.
Chargemaster itself is committed to investing £50 million over the next two years on expanding the Polar network with a combination of rapid and destination charging points in hotels, leisure facilities, shopping centres and other locations.
By 2020, there could be around 70,000 charging points both on the road and at destinations, with that number expected to rise to over 500,000 by 2030.
David Martell, chief executive of Chargemaster, said: “The biggest driver of electric car take-up will be consumer choice, and the array of new models being shown in Geneva shows that the market is about to explode.
"Within the next few years, several hundred electric models will be available, with plug-in variants of every type of vehicle, and almost every individual model.
“Car buyers can rest assured that the charging infrastructure to support these vehicles will keep pace with the electric car market itself, as we will deploy thousands of home, workplace and public charging points over the coming years.”
