The public charging network for electric cars should be discounted from the planning of those looking to go electric, I finally concluded this month. The constant rumblings of discontent emerging for EV owners who have to experience daily problems from broken charging points to lengthy queues to charge has been growing for some time, offset by those consumers, media and early adopters championing electric cars and the benefits of ownership. In the midst of the clamour, Tesla owners sail serenely on, with a good product and good charging network. It’s very hard to get to the bottom of it all, but with five years of EV ownership under my belt, I think I can fairly safely say I’ve now got a pretty clear overview of the entire experience.
