The Beauty Of Going Electric

Tue 25th Jun 2019

Greener literally means greenery in the latest research report which showcases the most picturesque electric car charging points in the UK.

The researchers from Go Ultra Low have listed the top ten best places for electric vehicle owners to recharge their car batteries, and maybe even recharge their proverbial batteries with some R&R.

The amazing locations including a remote charging point in the Scottish Highlands, a spot in the Lake District which has views of Ullswater whilst you charge your Tesla, a charging point overlooking the rolling hills of Devon, a station at the bottom of Mount Snowdon, Bovey Castle in Dartmoor, a chargepoint overlooking the Hastings beach and Bude in Cornwall.

Some of the less scenic, but no less breathtaking charging points include a historic stop-off in central Glasgow and recharging points at Battersea Park and one which showcases the beauty of London’s iconic Shard building.

Poppy Welch, head of Go Ultra Low, the government and industry campaign promoting the uptake of electric vehicles said: 'From a charging perspective, there has never been a better time to be an EV owner in the UK.

'Government and private investment in the network in recent years has seen an impressive rise in chargepoint numbers, with a mix of types and providers across the length and breadth of the UK.

'Many motorists think chargepoints are just found in urban areas like car parks in towns and cities, however, this simply isn't the case, so we thought the best way to demonstrate this is to show people.

'These images showcase the significant expansion in charging infrastructure highlighting the hidden gems that exist in the UK's charging network.'
