Rolec reaches 150,000 EV charging points milestone

Rolect hits 150,000 EVs charge point mark

Rolec EV has announced that it reached the 150,000 electric vehicles (EV) charging points manufactured milestone. This was met at its UK factory in Boston, Lincolnshire.

Rolec specialise in both designing and manufacturing a wide range of EV charging options.

This target was reached after its recent releases of its new WallPod EV: HomeSmart and WallPod EV: SolarCharge ranges.

It is expected that the new additions will boost these sales in the coming months.

Kieron Alsop, managing director of Rolec, said: "Hitting the 150,000 EV charge point figure is testament to the increasingly strong uptake of electric vehicles, as well as our comprehensive and industry-leading range of EV charging products.”

Earlier this month, the Government outlined its ambition for all new public rapid charge points the UK to have the option for debit and credit card payments for EV charge points from 2020.

The aim is for the UK to be the world leader in its offering of EV charging networks.

With additional payment methods the British public would be able to enjoy the benefits, speed and accessibility that EVs offer.

This milestone by Rolec will also help the UK meet its 2030 target of having seven million EVs on the road.

The analysis provided from Deloitte recently suggested the UK will need 28,000 public charging points in order to keep the 2030 circulation of EVs on the road.
