With a paucity of charging ports for “city owners,” electric car warnings “fell on deaf ears.”
DEMANDS for greater electric vehicle infrastructure have “fallen on deaf ears,” with infrastructure for a “significant section of the market” lacking.
The infrastructure “isn’t there” for “inner-city terraced house owners,” according to Chris Green, founder and COO of electric car company Regit. He claims that the necessary “effort and resource” has not been invested, therefore ruling out a whole new market for electric automobiles.
“Despite the support for ULEZ and CAZ, however, there is still work to be done to convince the public to use electric vehicles,” he told this website.
“It’s encouraging to see MPs now calling on the administration to do more in terms of infrastructure implementation.
“Unfortunately, and maybe predictably, those calls have gone unheard.” He went on to say, “We have been swamped with enquiries from inner-city terraced house owners who want to do their part and buy an electric vehicle, but the charging infrastructure just isn’t there for them.”
“As a result, we’re excluding such a large portion of the market simply because the work and resources to evaluate their demands haven’t been invested.
“And, even for those with the potential for charging capabilities, we’re seeing funds cut for new electric vehicles, and communication on newly established charging infrastructure is essentially non-existent,” according to Regit data.
