UK launches largest retail EV charging network

Volkswagen and the supermarket chain Tesco have joined forces to create what they claim will be the UK’s “largest retail network” of electric car chargers.

Volkswagen will work with electric vehicle charging point company Pod Point to install 2,400 recharging stations across the UK, increasing the total number of public chargers by 14% in the process. It’s expected that 600 Tesco stores will be fitted with these charging points over the next three years.

The plan will involve two types of charging points: 7kW chargers that will initially be free to use, and 50kW rapid chargers.
