‘Shocked’: The extortionate cost of charging EVs at motorway service stations laid bare

“Drivers who charge cars where they live are still likely to be well in-pocket, but not everyone has that option.

“Only two-thirds of homes have off-street parking, meaning drivers reliant on public charge points need to shop around.
