Major shake-up for electric vehicles in Glasgow car parks rolled out… – The Scottish Sun

GLASGOW is introducing a major electric vehicle shakeup in city centre car parks.

20 new charging points have been introduced for the eco-friendly cars across the city, as reported by Fleet World.

Q-Park has revealed these spots will be in their four city centre parking venues.

Drivers will be able to use them on a pay-as-you go basis with the Blink Charging EB Go app.

The popular parking garage chain is investing over £3m in electric vehicle charging points for the UK and Ireland.

Q-Park Head of Commerical John Denton said: “Liveability in urban areas is vitally important, and we are delighted to help support more emission-free miles being driven with good quality charging infrastructure.

“Our comprehensive EV charging point roll-out is progressing throughout the country in 2023 and we look forward to further installations in other cities.”

This comes as drivers in Glasgow are hit with new electric vehicle charges.

The local authority originally started covering the cost of charging in a bid to get more electric motors in the city.

But the new tariff is set to be introduced after the charging network “became a financial burden” to the council as the number of electric cars surged – with up to one million of Scotland’s three million vehicles expected to be electric by 2030.

The charging changes come into force today.

Motorists who use the chargers will have to pay a £1 connection fee to use them.
