More and more drivers are switching to electric vehicles (EV) and it's easy to see why. No more filling up. No more carbon emissions. A cleaner, more efficient way to drive.
The UK government wants to see our roads free of new petrol and diesel cars by 2040*.
As the EV infrastructure builds, the environmental and financial benefits of plug-in cars – not just the estimated 80% savings on fuel costs but the government grants on new purchases – make it a realistic alternative for drivers.
Current estimates suggest that there will be more than 1 million electric vehicles on the road by 2020, meaning that the UK will need to install 100,000 charging points – six times the number it currently offers**.
Rapid has recently become an EV partner of both Schneider Electric and EO, two leading suppliers of EV charging products. Combining these high quality products with Rapid’s high service levels, we believe we are able to offer installers, commercial and residential customers a unique EV charging proposition.
