The electric vehicle industry has quietly hit one of its biggest milestones to date, as the number of public charging points around the world surpasses the 1 million mark.
This is an incredible achievement with figures doubling in just three years, according to the recent tally by BloombergNEF. Clear signs that the direction of travel is moving further and further away from fossil fuels and the electric revolution is underway!
Whilst the majority of the new infrastructure has been built in China and Europe, North America is ramping up its infrastructure and there's hope that a pandemic stimulus plan will catalyse a new wave of construction.

BloombergNEF expects one in 10 vehicles purchased in 2025 will be battery-powered and by 2040, the world will need some 12 million public charging points and almost $400 billion spent on infrastructure. Of course, the plugs required will ultimately depend on how many electric vehicles are purchased; and vice versa.
