Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has laid out plans to expand London’s electric vehicle (EV) charging network.

Published on 17 June, the plan set out that the public and private sectors will work toward the delivery of an advanced EV infrastructure, with commitments by businesses and retailers to transform EV charging provision in London over the coming years. It also establishes an Electric Vehicle Taskforce, which will work to install the next generation of ultra-rapid charging points at London petrol stations later this year, as well as deliver five charging hubs with the ability for multiple cars to be charged in one place.

The Taskforce will bring together representatives from business, energy, infrastructure, government and the London boroughs.
