EVCPs should be “next great British emblem”

Government is pushing to establish electric vehicle charge points (EVCPs) as the “next great British emblem” and see them join other recognisable British icons like the black cab or the red post box.

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps announced that the Royal College of Art (RCA) and PA Consulting were appointed to deliver an iconic British charge point design, to be unveiled at the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow this November. 

A government statement said the chargepoints will be “functional and accessible for all users with sustainability at the heart of the design.”

Grant Shapps said, “Excellent design plays a key role in supporting our transition to zero emission vehicles, which is why I want to see EV chargepoints that are as iconic and recognisable as the British phone box, London bus or black cab.

“With less than 3 months to go until COP26, we continue to put the UK at the forefront of the design, manufacture and use of zero emission vehicles and their charging infrastructure, as we build back greener and call on countries around the world to similarly accelerate the transition to electric vehicles.”
