Tesla owners’ fury at Christmas electric car chaos:

Electric car drivers have called for more charging points to be installed across the UK after some Tesla owners were left queuing for three hours.

Chaos engulfed the electric motoring network as demand appeared to outstrip supply in come areas.

According to data from Zap Map there are currently 6712 rapid and ultra-rapid charging devices, across locations in the UK catering for the 420,000 plus cars…

Tesla owners yesterday blasted car charging chaos across the UK during the Christmas holiday with dozens of electric vehicles forced to wait in three hour queues.

Cars were logjammed up and down the country, with snaking queues spotted in Hertfordshire, Cumbria, Westmorland and Telford.

The huge queues came as rail strikes forced millions into having to take to the roads to get home for the festive period. A further 12 million cars were also expected to be on the UK’s road network today amid the ongoing industrial action.
