Plug-in Black Cabs will be mandatory from 2018 as Transport for London (TfL) has announced that licensed taxis will then need to be ‘zero emission capable’. Yet, the London cabbies will not be left alone in the endeavour to clean the air in the British capital. Mayor Boris Johnson and TfL have secured 65m pounds of funding to achieve a target of 9,000 taxis that meet the new conditions by 2020.

Chargers at channel: On the English side of the Eurotunnel, four Tesla Superchargers have been installed. They join two universal chargers at the Victor Hugo Terminal in Folkestone, Kent. The same installation can be found since June on the French side of the channel.

The Electric Vehicle Charging Association (EVCA) was set up by ABM, ChargePoint, Clean Fuel Connection, Envision Solar, EV Connect, NRG EVgo, Plugless Power, SeaWave Battery and Volta. The collective aim of the not-for-profit trade organisation is to increase EV acceptance through innovation in charging technology. Its first action is the publication of the “State of Charge” report.
