The Government is aware of over 200 chargepoints available at service stations on UK Motorways. A list of the available chargepoints at Motorway Service Areas can be found on the Government’s National Charge Point Registry (, which provides data on the numbers of each type of charge points where this information is made available by the chargepoint provider. As the market for plug in electric vehicles develops we have identified a need to potentially do more in this area.
