Electric Cars Plug-in UK Highway Service Stations – the motorway journey made easier. Watch the video
A number of highway Service Stations across Britain now have plug-in power points for electric cars. They are due to extend to other areas in the near future. In 2017 up to 50 thousand electric vehicles are on the road. Electric vehicles likely to be the only vehicle available to buy within a few years.
This is part of what Boris Johnson’s “green industrial revolution” and aim to tackle climate change and create jobs in industries such as nuclear energy.
The power pods make a long motorway journey a reality. If low on ‘power’ then no worries because a charger can be found at the next service station. More economical and eco-friendly.
Phone apps are also available to help track down the nearest charger. This should help while travelling long distance. Amazing what can be done with this kind of technology.
It is estimated that costs for rapid charge on the motorway can be about £6.50 for a 30 minute charge. At home it can cost around £3.64 for a full charge. Apparently there are public charging points at shopping centres for the duration of your stay.
Ecotricity is one of the main installers of electric car-chargers in England. The company has a network across the region of Gloucestershire. Proud to be among the first to promote the idea of electric travelling. Also quick to have the charger pods up and available to the motorist.

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is investing hundreds of millions of pounds to build a range of electric vehicles at its Castle Bromwich plant in Birmingham.
Is this the kind of car you like to see go electric? Mind you all vehicles will have to be electric soon. Charging up at home is fine if you can do it. But on the go you can charge at motorway garages.
