...the £500m set aside in the last budget by the UK government "goes nowhere in catching up with the £6bn Obama put into America...
So America has put 12 times as much into electric vehicle infrastructure compared to the UK. Trying to compare UK/USA investment figures is not easy (Apples Vs Oranges). A couple of statistics:
* America has five times the population of the UK. (326m Vs 65m)
* America has 36 times the area of the UK (9.1m km2 Vs 248k km2)
* America has 8 times the number of cars compared to the UK (266m Vs 31m)
* America's GDP is 7 times larger than the UK's ($19.3 trillion Vs $2.5 trillion)
Overall, I don't think the £500m that's been committed in the UK is totally out of line with what America are up to.
