Not so easy to make a quick getaway when it takes 3 hours to juice up your motor, eh Brits?

Re: 30m quid on removing greenhouse gases?

Taking it oh so very seriously, then.

Well in that context obviously not, but that clearly isn't the point of the operation.

The point is more likely a weak effort to nudge more people into EVs, provide the illusion there's enough charging capacity. There isn't, of course, and comparing numbers of fast chargers to numbers of fuels stations in an attempt to make it sound impressive is frankly disingenuous and ridiculous.

A robust comparison would be vehicle throughput per hour, fuels stations vs. fast chargers. Which will never happen because it exposes the woeful inadequacy of charging infrastructure (a few minutes to fill the tank, usually at least 4 pumps per station (often 10 or more)versus single fast chargers occupied for at least an hour). The maths is not in EV's favour.
