More charging poles than electric cars

, Comments 0 comments

The number of charging poles in the Netherlands is growing so fast that they now outnumber the electrical cars they are intended for.

The national motor vehicle authority reports that by the end of April the Netherlands had 2,850 charging poles to provide power to just 1,560 fully electrically powered vehicles.

Even when the 786 semi-electrical vehicles with an auxiliary engine are included, the poles still outnumber the cars. The E-laad E-charge foundation says it will continue to install new charging poles, at a cost of 6,000 euros a piece. “Our objective is 10,000 poles,” a spokesperson said.”
