The ongoing energy crisis has not only sparked concerns about the energy efficiency of our homes, it has also made us consider the type of vehicle we drive.
A recent survey by the Home Builders Federation (HBF) has revealed that 71% of respondents said they would be more likely to buy an electric car if their house came with an Electric Vehicle Charge Point (EVCP).
The government is set to legislate that all new homes and buildings with an allocated parking space will be required to have an EVCP.
Nearly 94,000 (22.5%) of vehicles registered to date in 2022 have been Battery Electric or Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles, up from just 13.8% a year ago (Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, based on Jan–March).
