Hotel chain Best Western adds electric car charging points

Businesses looking for a meeting venue with an electric car charging point will be able to use the network of Best Western hotels by September.

The group already has 50 hotels with charging points and is aiming to increase this to at least 135 by September – equivalent to half its network of 270 locations.

Best Western’s chairman Angela Burns said: “There are currently some 10,000 electric car users on UK roads but that really is the tip of the iceberg – there will be, according to the latest Department of Transport figures, 1.2 million EVs on UK roads by 2020.

“Those cars will each require a charging station, which means there will need to be 1.2 million charging stations by 2020, of which 10% must be publicly accessible, like our charging stations.”

“What we are seeing now is very much the first wave of a movement, which is set to become huge over the next decade.

“As a company that is forward thinking it is only right that Best Western is at the forefront of this advance towards greener transport.”
