UK: Motorway charge points could take electric cars onto the open road

A network of rapid charging points that can recharge an electric car in around 15 minutes are to be installed in motorway service stations around the country.

Conventional charging points usually take several hours to provide enough power for modern electric cars.

With a range of around 100 miles, this has left the vehicles largely used for short journeys in towns and cities, limiting their uptake by consumers.

Manufacturers now hope that with a network of charging points in motorway service stations, it will allow owners to make longer journeys and help electric cars become more mainstream on Britain’s roads.

“The super-chargers we are installing can recharge a car in the time it takes to have a cup of tea in a service station,” said Dale Vince, founder of Ecotricity, the company installing the new charge points.
