Vauxhall is launching the Electric Streets of Britain campaign to support the 40% of households without off-street parking make the switch to electric. Working with charge point operators and local councils we aim to accelerate the installation of on-street residential charging right across the UK.
To do this we need your help. Whether you drive an electric vehicle today or would consider one in future, we want to hear from you. By completing this simple form, you can highlight the requirement for residential charging on your street. Using this data, we will build a nationwide map of where current and future demand exists. We will share this data with councils to help them make informed investment decisions.
The sale of new petrol and diesel cars, and vans, is set to end in the UK from 2030. This transition requires a charging network that is reliable and accessible to motorists across the country. The ability to charge at home is one of the key factors determining whether motorists make the switch to electric. We surveyed all UK councils to find out how prepared they are for this transition. The key findings are detailed below. By completing our simple survey you can help us work collaboratively with local councils and charge point operators to accelerate the adoption of this vital infrastructure.
Vauxhall has launched a database which allows all motorists register an interest in having residential charge points installed on their street. Vauxhall will share this data with local councils and charging operators to ensure investment is focused in the right areas.
You don’t need to own an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle today to complete the form. We also want to hear from you, if you are considering making the switch in the future, this will help ensure the required infrastructure is ready & waiting for you!
Vauxhall have partnered with leading on-street-charging operators Char.gy, Connected Kerb and SureCharge, to support our Electric Streets of Britain campaign.
These partners have access to funding from Vauxhall to support their efforts in educating your local council on the best way to quickly roll out this vital infrastructure.
Details are based on Vauxhall's Freedom of Information request up to 2nd July 2023 and completed by 289 of the 414 councils approached
According to exclusive data collated by Vauxhall, more than 70% of UK councils do not currently have a published strategy in place for the installation of residential on-street charging.
The findings come from a Freedom of Information request submitted to 414 councils and local authorities across the UK. See how many on-street residential chargers are due to be installed in the next 12 months in your local area:
Population: 5,950,800 (as of 2021)
Additional charge points estimated to be installed this year: 1,408
How many of these are classed as on-street residential charge points: 1,094 (78%)
Population: 4,880,200 (as of 2021)

WLTP Figures shown are for comparison purposes and should only be compared to the fuel consumption and CO2 values of other cars tested to the same technical standard. The fuel consumption achieved, and CO2 produced, in real world conditions will depend upon a number of factors including, but not limited to: the accessories fitted (pre and post registration); variations in weather; driving styles and vehicle load. The WLTP (Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedure) is used to measure fuel consumption and CO2 figures. The CO2 figures display a range to reflect the highest value for the highest emitting version with all available options added, through to a minimum value to represent the lowest emitting version in standard specification. For more information contact your local Vauxhall Retailer.
Fuel consumption data and CO2 emission data are determined using the WLTP test cycle, and the relevant values are translated back to allow the comparability into NEDC. The values do not take into account in particular use and driving conditions, equipment or options and may vary depending on the format of tyres. For more information contact your local Retailer
