In just a year, the number of electric vehicles deployed by EV100 members has risen to 169,000, over twice the number from last year. The total number of vehicles committed to be EV by 2030 as part of EV100 commitments has risen by 80% to 4.8 million.
As well as getting EVs on the roads, EV100 members are also using their property portfolios – their offices, factories and stores – to build a network of charging infrastructure that supports their staff and customers to also make the switch to EVs. Across the membership, 6,500 locations have been committed to have charging installed, a 103% increase on last year. There has also been an 84% increase in the number of locations with charging already installed to nearly 2,100, and the number of individual charging points installed has increased by 79% to nearly 16,900.
As we approach the all-important COP26, the report calls for businesses to lead from the front and for every company with a fleet or employee car scheme to join EV100 and commit to going electric.
