UK: Government aims to put spark in electric car sales.

T HE Government and manufacturers are launching a new campaign aimed at educating drivers into the benefits of buying a hybrid or pure-electric vehicle and dispelling fears over their cost and limited range.

Unveiling the Go Ultra Low programme this week, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg announced that £9.3 million will be invested in increasing the number of charging points across the country where battery-powered cars such as the Nissan Leaf, BMW i3 or Renault Zoe can be topped up.

Although there are already more charging points than filling stations in London, the cash injection will create hundreds more charging points across the country, adding to the more than 6,000 already available, and including 140 new rapid charge points which can charge an electric car in less than half an hour.

This will cement the UK’s position as one of the best for electric vehicle recharging networks in Europe.

Nick Clegg said: “Electric cars are one of the most promising of our green industries and we want to secure the UK’s position as a global leader in both the production and adoption of these vehicles.
