EV Stations to Overtake Gas Stations in UK by 2020

EV Stations

The number of public electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in the United Kingdom will overtake gas stations by the summer of 2020 or even sooner, according to a new analysis by Nissan Motors.

More than 75 percent of gas stations have closed in the last 40 years, while EV charging stations have risen from a few hundred to more than 4,100 since 2011. Given the current trend, Nissan expects public EV charging stations to reach 8,200 by the end of 2020—surpassing around 7,900 fuel stations that are projected to be around by then.

Nissan’s report does not account for electric vehicle charging done at home. Japan recently passed the same milestone as EV charging stations overtook gas stations earlier this year.
