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.

Zap stats – 24 October 2017
272Last 30 days
The table above shows the total number of locations which have a public charging point installed (4896), the number of devices at those locations (7546) and the total number of connectors within these devices (13991). There have been 272 new connectors added to the Zap-Map database over the last 30 days.
Number of UK charging locations and connectors over past 12 months: Zap-Map, October 2017
This graph shows the number of public charge connectors and locations on the Zap-Map database over the last year. The total number of connectors has increased from 9,125 in February 2016 to nearly 12,000 by Jan 2017.
Charging connectors by type: Zap-Map, 2011-2016
The graph above shows the breakdown of total connectors by Slow, Fast, Rapid DC and Rapid AC charger speed for the last five years.
Rapid Chargers – 24 October 2017
79Last 30 days
The table above shows the total number of locations which have a rapid public charging point installed (785), the number of rapid devices at those locations (1169) and the total number of rapid connectors within these devices (2537). There have been 79 new rapid connectors added to the Zap-Map database over the last 30 days.
Profile of rapid connectors by type: Zap-Map, October 2017
The pie-chart above shows the share of total rapid connectors by each rapid connector type. The CHAdeMO 50kW Rapid DC chargers are the most widespread with 905 connectors – 35% of the total.
Profile of rapid devices: Zap-Map, October 2017
Total Rapid connectors:2537
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 903 devices with a JEVS CHAdeMO 50kW connector, 725 devices with a Type 2 Mennekes 43kW connector, 643 with a CCS Combo 50kW connector and 262 Tesla superchargers.
Please note: Each Rapid device, with the exception of Tesla Superchargers, has a minimum of two connectors, so the total Rapid devices (2537), is not the sum of the above number of devices by connector type.
Rapid charging connectors by type: Zap-Map, 2011-2016
The chart above shows the number of Rapid connectors by type at the end of 2011 to 2016. There has been strong growth in the number of Rapid chargers in the UK from just over 30 CHAdeMO connectors in 2011 to over 2100 Rapid connectors across CHAdeMO, CCS, Tesla and Type 2 Rapid chargers by the end of 2016.
Profile of charging connectors across the UK regions: Zap-Map, October 2017
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.
