Electric car charge points in Oxford


Electric car-drivers will now be able to charge their vehicles for free after 20 charge points were set up at car parks around Oxford.
Lois Muddim, trustee of environmental group Low Carbon West Oxford, told The Oxford Mail: “We would support any initiative that goes any way to make low carbon living easier and more possible. This sounds like it is making electric car driving more convenient.”
Drivers can use the charge points free of charge, though they must be registered with Chargemaster, who operate the scheme.
The cars have a range of 155 miles, can be charged within three hours and cost less than two pence per mile, making them considerably more efficient than previous iterations of the electric car.
