Electric Cars North Wales

Wales is experiencing a boom in the sale of electric vehicles which far exceeds other parts of the UK. Last year sales of plug-in vehicles increased by 35% in Wales compared to the UK average of 27%. Despite of the substantial growth in electric cars, North Wales, statistically Wales still has the lowest charge points per 100km2 in the UK.

The number of EV chargers per 100km2 is wide ranging geographically according to data from the Department for Transport (DfT) and ZapMap from:

147 per 100km2 EV chargers in London or 2.6 per 10,000 residents to;

1.55 per 100km2 EV chargers North Wales or 1.03 per 10,000 residents.

To address this the Welsh Government have allocated £2m of funding in a bid to significantly improve EV charging in North Wales. Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Transport, Ken Skates said the funding will be used to “develop a network of public charging points near our trunk roads”

UK wide the (DfT) has committed to £37m investment to transform electric charge point infrastructure which will include solar power charging. However financial forecasts from Deloitte’s has warned that the UK will need to spend over £1.5bn on public EV charge points to keep pace with the estimated 7 million EV’s expected to be on the road by 2030.
