“Many of our customers are unsure of what the future holds. While visiting us they will ask for advice on the types of electric or hybrid cars we would recommend.”
Motorists in Beverley or visitors to the town can charge their cars for free at the Flemingate Shopping Centre. Centre Manager Graham Tait says that chargers on the site are popular with motorists. He also adds that drivers are more environmentally conscious.
The charging points installed by the council are managed by Pod Point. Currently, they allow drivers to charge their car for free.
Owners of electric vehicles need to register for a free account via the website or app before charging their vehicle for the first time.
The council also say that the ongoing scheme to install chargers will aid them in promoting the use of electric vehicles.
In a statement released they said;
“Investing in a network of charging points across the East Riding will emphasise the benefits of such vehicles to our residents. It will also encourage more drivers to consider the environment when purchasing a new vehicle.”
