Southampton has set up more than 40 charging points for electric cars (EVs) across the city. The charge spots are in NCP car parks, shopping centres, supermarkets and restaurant chains. The port city’s EV points form part of a membership scheme called POLAR that aims to link 4,000 points in at least 100 city centres by 2012.
