Public Charging – What You Need to Know

When finding electric vehicles for your business, you should also consider which type of charger they are compatible with. There are currently more charging points than petrol stations in the UK, but your vehicle might not be able to charge at all of them. And, in addition to compatibility concerns, you may also need a subscription or membership to use some networks.

Research which vehicles work with which types of chargers (older models might not be compatible with smart charging, for example), and which charging networks you have access to locally. This might be a key factor in deciding to go fully electric or not.
