More than 23 000 charging points available in France

The number of public charging points in France increased within a year by some 14.8% to 23,019 installed at 10,060 sites, according to Gireve, a French start-up created in 2013 by leading players in electric mobility.

Currently, there are around 6.5 electric cars per one public charging point in France. Only several percent of those charging points are DC fast chargers.

One of the reasons behind the relatively slow pickup of charging infrastructure is the death of Autolib, the electric car-sharing service of Paris, which also absorbed some of the charging infrastructure.
