Electric Vehicles Are On The Rise In Kent!


Electric Vehicles Are On The Rise In Kent!

Kent are driving the way forward for electric vehicles in the United Kingdom! It’s a revolution which environmentalists have branded a step in the right direction for the UK who are spearheading the move to a sustainable future.

Latest figures from the department of transport show in September 2017 there were 2,999 eco vehicles in the country, which is 773 more than in the same month in 2016. This means there are now 25 drivers for every driving point in the country.

With this being hailed a step in the right direction environmentalist and chairman of the green party in Kent Stuart Jeffery has said: “We live on a single planet and we need to make sure we don’t run the planet out of resources and pollute it too much, the technology is moving on. The newer cars have got huge ranges on a full charge”

Whilst Mr Jeffery agrees we are moving in the right direction he notes that a bigger push for more off-road charging points is needed to make a real impact with this technology.

Currently, the local authority with the highest number of registered plug-in vehicles at the end of September last year was Sevenoaks with 289, followed by Tunbridge Wells with 261 and Tonbridge and Malling with 260!

However, even the lowest number of registered plug-in vehicles is still relatively high with Dover were 84 are registered, Gravesham with 99 and Shepway with 108. Considering these numbers, it’s surprising that there only around 90 electric car charging points in the country which are registered for public use.

The future is bright for electric vehicles and this shows we are at the tipping point of people switching from petrol and diesel and to electric vehicles.

With this technology taking Kent by storm we are excited to see what is next in store for this revolutionary renewable technology!
