- The ongoing energy crisis has not only sparked concerns about the energy efficiency of our homes, it has also made us consider the type of vehicle we drive.
- A recent survey by the Home Builders Federation (HBF) has revealed that 71% of respondents said they would be more likely to buy an electric car if their house came with an Electric Vehicle Charge Point (EVCP).
- The government is set to legislate that all new homes and buildings with an allocated parking space will be required to have an EVCP.
- Nearly 94,000 (22.5%) of vehicles registered to date in 2022 have been Battery Electric or Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles, up from just 13.8% a year ago (Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, based on Jan–March). Source: Dataloft, Home Builders Federation, Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders
