Are workplace charging points the key to the future of the electric vehicle market?

Ford Motors has recently announced plans to make funding available for workplace charging points as a means of kick starting the electric vehicle market. We have seen a number of similar ventures over the years although it seems that governments and car manufacturers around the world are now coming together to give the boost required.

The electric car industry has suffered from disappointing sales in recent times, perhaps a reflection of the worldwide economic situation, although many experts believe that a lack of investment in charging points is behind the disappointing performance to date. In many ways the introduction of workplace electric charging points could be the key to unlocking the door to the mass market.
