EV Charging Stats 2020

With new charge points being added daily, the UK’s charging point infrastructure is continually changing. The tables and charts below track charging point distribution by speed, region and network market share; the figures are updated live directly from the Zap-Map database.

The chart shows the breakdown of charge point connectors by slow (3-5kW), fast (7-22kW), rapid (25-99kW) and ultra-rapid (100kW+) power rating for the past nine years and 2020 to date. As the chart reveals, the past few years has seen a dramatic increase in the number of public EV charge points in the UK. Between 2017 and 2019 the total number of connectors almost doubled and with the introduction of the new 150-350kW chargers, the number of ultra rapid connectors also saw a big increase. Another trend is the growth in slow chargers, as local authorities install on-street charging options to enable EV purchase for people without off-street parking.

As shown in the chart, there has been strong growth in the number of rapid chargers in the UK from just over 30 CHAdeMO connectors in 2011 to over 7000 rapid connectors across CHAdeMO, CCS, Tesla and Type 2 Rapid chargers by the end of 2019. From 2018 to 2019 CCS connector types saw the largest increase due to the emergence and demand for ultra-rapid charging speeds.
