EVA England is calling on EV owners to complete its online survey by the 15th of March 2021. The survey focuses on public charging and other EV-related issues. The association has made the move following the government’s proposals to improve confidence in the public charging network. The results will be used as part of its response to the consultation.
Gill Nowell, director of EVA England, commented: “This is an important opportunity for EV drivers to have their voice heard on topics close to their heart, namely ‘can I find a charger, can I easily pay, and does it work’?”
