Just back from our regular monthly shop at Aldi. Plenty of BMWs, Range Rovers, and other posh new cars in there, I'm surprised they allow our ancient Volvo in the car park now. Didn't see any charging points, but then I've yet to see an electric car, apart from the odd hybrid around this way anyway.

I wouldnít worry to much, Aldi and Lidl will be on the case. Aldi are bigger than coop and are Britainís 5th largest supermarket and last August Lidl o er took Waitrose to become Britainís 7th largest supermarket.

Anyway the one or two charging points at other supermarkets is just box ticking, 2 charge points in a 300 plus capacity car park. Whoís kidding who. If things go as some think itís going to go youíll need a charging point in every parking bay. Or you may as well pull the plug on the full electric car thing.

Yep, 300 charging points and a power plant to supply it when demand is high.

Funny it always makes me wonder how the shoppers get home from Aldi and Lidl what with their being no fuel station at those supermarkets

I presume they must just go to a normal fuel station

That's a fair point, but the trend is for these charge points to be situated at supermarkets and car parks across the country, I'm maybe not the sharpest knife in the drawer but could this be anything to do with the half hour charge time that is required to top up your battery so that your car has enough range to get you home when it is fully loaded with all that extra shopping your buying because your getting your car charged up for free. (well at least it used to be free not sure what the arrangement is now)
There again you really need to look at how many cars can top up with petrol in the same time it takes 1 car to charge. So makes sense for these to be at supermarkets so that you are tempted to shop while you wait.
I'm going to take the charge at home argument out of the equation as this is a luxury that isn't possible for millions of motorists.
