How do you charge an electric vehicle on a narrow street?

A common issue with owning an electric vehicle is that many households don’t have off-street parking. This company is trying to fix this.


Robert Llewellyn visits a residential street in Oxford to see what Urban Electric is doing to answer this with their ingenious and unobtrusive electric vehicle charging street furniture…. pop-up chargers no less!

They are launching a network of these pop-up charging hubs in a “living laboratory” trial scheme on this suburban street.

These Urban Electric chargers can provide electricity at 7kW which whilst not rapid charging, is more than enough for most destination and overnight charging.

Robert went to take a look and charge up his EV on what turned out to be one of the hottest days ever recorded in the UK (hence some technical issues with the sound recording equipment, apologies for the occasional drop out of the audio).
