Commenting on both announcements from the Department for Transport on introducing credit and debit card payments on rapid charge points from next Spring*, and installing charge points on newly developed homes**, Edmund King, AA president says; “These announcements are a step in the right direction. It is encouraging that we will have an over-arching review to give a clearer picture of what is needed on the electric highway ahead. We are pleased that our calls for rapid chargers to be accessed by all via debit and credit cards or contactless payment has been heeded.

“Three quarters (75%***) of drivers agree that new homes should cater for the EV revolution by having chargers installed during their construction. We have long argued this point and are happy steps will be taken to encourage drivers to switch to electric.”
