UK Government Plans Scalextric-style EV charging points

In a move which will potentially increase the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in the UK by making their recharging easier and wireless, the government has plans underway to install a new generation of Scalextric-style EV charging points.

According to a UK government plan recently unveiled by the Department for Transport (DfT), an investment of £40 million will be earmarked for developing wireless charging systems which will enable EV drivers to charge their vehicles on the road, in car parks, or at the roadside, without having to plug the vehicles. As the wireless charging will be easier, drivers would be more inclined to buy electric vehicles.

The recent announcement by the Chinese government about an increase in tariff to 40% has delivered a hard blow to Tesla Motors, in terms of the cost of the electric vehicles which the company is presently selling in China.
