Not so easy to make a quick getaway when it takes 3 hours to juice up your motor, eh Brits?

Another stupid number

I heard (on Radio 4 so it must be true) that not only are there more charging points in the UK than service stations, but on average nobody is more than 55 miles from one.

Surely the more relevant statistics would be the number of electric vehicles there are for each charging point. However, that may be a rather embarrassing number to publish especially when you consider the difference in the time it takes to recharge a fully depleted battery compared with filling an empty fuel tank.
