UK Government Invests In 350 New Charging Points for uptake of Electric Taxis
The government has set aside £6 million for 17 councils to install electric car charging points that will support the uptake of electric taxis.
The local authorities, which are dotted around the country in cities such as Manchester, Brighton and Leicester, will build a combined total of almost 350 charge points. Of those, around 300 will be rapid chargers, while 46 will be fast chargers.
According to the Department for Transport (DfT), around 800 ultra-low-emission taxis and some 3,000 private hire vehicles will make use of the charging points.
Transport Minister Jesse Norman said the new infrastructure would help the country make the switch to low-emission transport.
