How many electric car charging points are there in London?

I live in the U.S., but am planning a trip to the London area later this year. I’m just curious: if I rent an EV while I’m overseas, how many electric car charging points are there in London?

You’re in luck. The greater London area has the most charging points compared to any other spot in Britain, numbering in at 10,032. There are over 30,000 charging points across the whole country, so worrying about running out of battery charge shouldn’t be one of your primary concerns. Just like in the U.S., the U.K. has started gearing up its infrastructure to be able to handle the transition from ICE cars to EVs.
The U.K. has decided to end the production of gas-powered cars in 2030, and recently committed £450 million to develop even more charging ports across the country.
The areas that need more ports in particular are rural areas in the east and much of Scotland. The U.K. even has an ambitious goal of becoming carbon-neutral by 2050. But for this to happen, Parliament will need to invest considerably more time and money into transforming areas of the country that are bare of charging ports, known as charging deserts.
