Electric car charging network to grow for Olympics

London mayor Boris Johnson today announced plans for a network of charge points to support the Olympic and Paralympic zero-emission electric vehicle fleet.

Energy giant GE will supply a “significant number”of charge points to power the London 2012 fleet of 200 BMW and Mini electric vehicles.

After the sporting events, the charge points will become part of Source London, a “lasting legacy” benefiting electric car drivers in London and especially those living or visiting the regenerated east of the city.

Johnson said: “It is my goal to lengthen London’s lead as the electric vehicle capital of Europe.”
