Ben Everitt MP is delighted Milton Keynes has more rapid electric car charging points per 100,000 population than any other city or town in the UK with 117 installed so far.
The rapid charging points are currently the fastest way to charge an electric car and Ben has been keen to champion MK as a place for new innovative technology since his election in 2019. He has previously welcomed Transport Secretary Grant Shapps to MK with Milton Keyne South MP Iain Stewart to discuss electric cars (pictured above).
MK's rate currently stands at 43 per 100k population. When you add in regular electric car charging points Milton Keynes has 134 electric car charging points per 100,000 population which is higher than any place in England outside of some London council areas.
Ben Everitt, the MP for Milton Keynes North, commented: "I'm delighted to see Milton Keynes is continuing to lead the way with electric car charging points.
"Grant Shapps, the Transport Secretary, is well aware of how keen I am to push MK as a green tech, innovative city and we're showing how we're leaders on this front."
The number of electric car charging points in Milton Keynes has actually increased by 32% since Ben was elected in December 2019.
BP Chargemaster actually moved their headquarters to a new purpose-built facility in Linford Wood.
