Charging point statistics 2018

With new charge points being added daily, the UK’s charging point infrastructure is continually changing. The tables and charts shown below track the number of charging points across the UK and are updated live from the Zap-Map database. In addition to the number of charging devices and locations, the charts provide a breakdown by charger type, connector type and by region.

The chart shows the number of public charging connectors and locations on the Zap-Map database over the past 12 months. The total number of connectors has increased from just over 13,000 in November 2017 to more than 18,000 by October 2018.

Charging connectors by type: Zap-Map, 2011-2017

The chart shows the breakdown of connectors by slow, fast and rapid type chargers for the last seven years. As the chart reveals, the past few years has seen increased investment in fast and rapid units at the expense of slow chargers. This reflects the growing demand for higher charging rates as battery capacities increase and EVs are driven on longer journeys.

The chart above shows the number of charging devices across the UK which has at least one of the specified Rapid connector type. As shown, there are 1558 devices with a JEVS CHAdeMO 50kW connector, 1116 devices with a Type 2 Mennekes 43kW connector, 1301 with a CCS Combo 50kW connector and 339 Tesla superchargers.

Note that each Rapid device, with the exception of Tesla Superchargers, has a minimum of two connectors, so the total Rapid devices (4317), is not the sum of the above number of devices by connector type.
