Plans for an electric car charging point in every new home in Europe
Car manufacturers welcome plans by the EU to boost the convenience of electric cars by increasing recharging facilities
Every new or refurbished house in Europe will need to be equipped with an electric vehicle recharging point, under a draft EU directive expected to come into effect by 2019.
In a further boost to prospects for the electric car market in Europe, the regulations due to be published before the end of the year state that by 2023, 10% of parking spaces in new buildings in the EU zone will also need recharging facilities.
