That there are problems with the UK electric car public charging infrastructure today isn’t in doubt.

You can’t deny the photos of queues of cars waiting to charge, or the statistics on broken chargers, or the cost of charging versus fossil fuel and more.

None of those things is acceptable, and they are all underpinned by the fact that the original mandate to switch off combustion-engined new car sales was issued without a hint of a plan of how to achieve it.

But there are aspects to the browbeaten narrative that are troubling: it takes no account of the huge investment going into improving the situation, or the numerous examples of new charging points opening, or the thousands of positive customer experiences each day.
