EV owners only rarely need to use a public charge point. Most charging is at home

The leafy suburb market with front drives will, I suspect, not be adequate to support a market fully.

The inner-city living driver, the older style terrace (even in the suburbs, and if it's London especially) living driver, the flat dweller None of us have access to a front drive charging point.

And public charge points need to be cheap enough to not cause resentment. And I'm saying now, I'll be bloody resentful if I find in the future that I'm paying more to charge and run my car from a public charge point near my North London terraced house than the rich folks the driveways of their million pound+ semis and detached houses.
