With new points being added daily, the landscape of UK charging point infrastructure is continually changing. The charts below show the profile of public charging points across the UK, updated live from the Zap-Map database. They track how many charge points there are currently in the UK, how many and what type of rapid chargers there are and a regional breakdown of charging points.

Profile of rapid devices: Zap-Map, August 2018
Total Rapid connectors:3751
The chart above shows the number of charging devices across the UK which has at least one of the specified Rapid connector type. Thus there are 1359 devices with a JEVS CHAdeMO 50kW connector, 956 devices with a Type 2 Mennekes 43kW connector, 1098 with a CCS Combo 50kW connector and 335 Tesla superchargers. Note: Each Rapid device, with the exception of Tesla Superchargers, has a minimum of two connectors, so the total Rapid devices (3751), is not the sum of the above number of devices by connector type.
Visit the charge point basics page for an explanation of the different types of rapid connectors. Use the EV Model filter on the main map to see connector compatibility with your vehicle.
Rapid charging connectors by type: Zap-Map, 2011-2017
The chart above shows the number of Rapid connectors by type at the end of 2011 to 2017. There has been strong growth in the number of Rapid chargers in the UK from just over 30 CHAdeMO connectors in 2011 to over 2600 Rapid connectors across CHAdeMO, CCS, Tesla and Type 2 Rapid chargers by the end of 2017.
Profile of charging connectors across the UK regions: Zap-Map, August 2018
The pie-chart above shows the breakdown of charging point connectors in each of the UK regions. Scotland has the most charging points followed by London and the South-East; the regions with the least charging points are Yorkshire and Wales.
