Chargemaster to exhibit at the Fleet Show after recording one million UK electric vehicle charges

Electric vehicles in the UK have charged a total of one million times using Chargemaster’s nationwide network of charging points. This has provided drivers with a total of around 9.5 million kWh of electricity since September 2012.

The British firm, which is a leading provider of electric vehicle charging infrastructure, has installed 10,000 public and commercial charging points. Chargemaster was also ranked as one of the fastest growing technology companies in the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 league table.

Chargemaster records all charging events through its Chargevision back office system and while it took nearly two years to rack up 500,000 charges – from the first one in September 2012 to half a million in July 2014 – it took just six months to reach its one millionth charge.

The rapid growth in electric vehicles charging on Chargemaster’s nationwide network is supported by figures from the SMMT, which show that the number of plug-in cars registered in the UK quadrupled from 2013 to 2014.

David Martell, CEO of Chargemaster, said: “Figures from our charging network echo the recent good news from the UK motor industry regarding the growth in electric vehicle sales. It is clear that the increasing diversity of plug-in cars available is appealing to consumers and that drivers are recognising the benefits that electric vehicles bring in both reducing their cost of motoring and their emissions.”

Visit Chargemaster at the Fleet Show on 12 May at Silverstone to view its comprehensive range of electric vehicle charging solutions.
