The Zipcar car club that runs 325 VW e-Golf in London complains about the slow expansion of fast-charging infrastructure in the British capital. That is nothing new, unfortunately, but Zipcar makes a new argument.
Charging infrastructure in the British capital has always been a problem. The sheer size of London but more so its scattered governmental set up of over 30 more or less independent boroughs make any central initiative difficult.
Still, electric car sharing provider Zipcar had yet a new argument for why it was so hard to get charged here: some councils would refuse to install charging stations because they consider them “too ugly” for the borough.
