"Most comprehensive map of electric car charging points in the UK" is launched
The map has been developed by the firm to provide an up-to-date list of charging points.
In addition to pinpointing the location, the map shows the street view, type of charger (slow, fast, rapid), pricing, parking and access details.
Of the 752 mapped charging points, most are "slow" or "standard", with 27 rapid chargers – 26 of which are in Nissan dealerships.
The firm points out that forecasts for the total number of charging points in the UK vary, but the consensus is there will be around 3-5,000 points across the UK by the end of the year, which will be added to the Zap-Map on a weekly basis as they come on stream.
Melanie Shufflebotham of Next Green Car said: 'There is a good deal of talk about the lack of on-street charging points being a key constraint to the take-up of electric cars. Clearly more points need to be installed, but at least now, with Next Green Car’s Zap-Map, consumers and businesses can come to a single source to find a charging point on their route.'
