With electric vehicles becoming increasingly popular, Uswitch was keen to find out which European cities were the most EV-friendly.
The environmental crisis has led to an increased demand for sustainable vehicles. Electric vehicles (EVs) have surged in popularity over the last decade, with a recent report finding that EV sales across Europe rose by over 1000% between 2014 and the first quarter of 2020.
With their capacity to eliminate fuel emissions and reduce air pollution, switching to an electric vehicle has numerous benefits for the planet. While the advantages of electric vehicles are well-documented, there are still many drivers hesitant to purchase an EV due to logistical concerns like cost and a perceived lack of electric car charging points.
If we are to successfully encourage more drivers to go electric, then the widespread availability of cost-effective EVs and charging stations is imperative. Home EV charging stations are an under-utilised but economical way of charging your electric vehicle at home.
In a bid to discover which European cities were most committed to encouraging the use of electric vehicles, the EV charging experts at Uswitch conducted a study on 33 major European cities to find out which places were best equipped to accommodate the use of electric vehicles.
