Interactive map: Correlation between electric car sales and available charging points (2020 update)

This interactive map visualises the correlation between the market uptake of electrically-chargeable vehicles (ECVs) and the availability of charging infrastructure for each of the 27 EU member states and the United Kingdom.



Key observations

  • Of the 199,825 charging points available in the European Union today, over 25% are located in the Netherlands (50,824), with another 20% in Germany (40,517), 15% in France (30,367) and 14% in the United Kingdom (28,538).
     
  • Together, these four countries account for more than 75% of all ECV charging points in the European Union.
  • By contrast, the same four countries only cover 27% of the EU’s total surface area.
     
  • On the other end of the spectrum, a vast country like Romania – roughly six times bigger than the Netherlands – only counts 344 charging points, or 0.2% of the EU total.
