Good News ? Sorry I do not think so, only the upper and middle class can afford these over priced cars whilst Cancer patients and their visitors have to pay up to 6 + per visit.
If you are unemployed and your mother is dying of a serious illness you would not think this good news, the parking should be free for all in Gt Britain not just them in Scotland and Wales.
This country of mine looks after the richest in society and the richest grab all they can, they are the only ones who can afford these over priced hybrid/ electric toys, and now they get free charging taking up much needed parking areas for free - roll on the revolution !! if me and my friends could afford one we would have one, most work hard for minimum wage.

This is an example of GREENWASHING.
An electric car is only GREEN if the electricity used to charge its batteries is powered by GREEN (RENEWABLE) ENERGY.

Perhaps they didn't take off because electricity cost so much?
