ST1100, you see a different world to what I see, over here in the North West there are plenty of BEV's on the road, mostly Nissan Leaf but a good number of Tesla's as well.
I discount Hybrids, and see them just as a tax dodge for company car drivers, BEV's are to be the future for the time being.
As for charge points, Tesla is leading the way, loads of Tesla SuperChargers are going in around the country, we already have them at both ends of the M62, just waiting to be commissioned.
Obviously Tesla will broker a deal with other EV makers, so that an adapter can be used to charge there vehicles at the Tesla Superchargers common sense would dictate that charging stations should become universal, and in the fullness of time a std charging port will be established, although this should have been done from the get go, as we are now going through a Betamax v VHS type race.
Already you can charge a Tesla at a Chademo fast charger using an adapter, most EV's have a Chademo charging port but not the Tesla.
With a decent charging infrastructure there will be little need to charge at home, although a nice luxury for those that can, as ever there will always be the have and have knots.
