Polar electric vehicle charging network keeps pace with EV market growth

Polar charge point EV

Polar has grown its UK public rapid charging network by 50% in the past year: matching the annual percentage growth in electric vehicle registrations.

The entire Polar network now consists of more than 6,500 charging points and provides EV drivers with access to DC and AC rapid charging, as well as AC slow and fast charging.

David Martell, chief executive of Chargemaster, said: “A reliable rapid charging network is very important for increasing EV adoption, and we have grown our nationwide network from 250 units in June 2017 to over 375 today.

“The idea that charging infrastructure is not keeping pace with the growing market of EVs is false – there is already existing capacity in the network, and we will continue to ensure that drivers have an expansive and reliable public charging network.”
