Jean-Louis Borloo (the French Minister of Ecology, Energy and Sustainable Development) has announced plans to install 75,000 public recharging points by 2015, including 15,000 fast recharging bays, to meet the needs of future electric vehicle drivers.
In parallel, 13 French towns have signed an agreement with the state and automotive manufacturers to develop their public recharging infrastructure between 2011 and 2012.
Agreements have also been signed between Renault and organisations such as Unibail Rodamco, Leclerc, and Vinci Park, to install recharging points in public areas, such as shopping centres, hypermarkets, supermarkets and car parks.
As such, in the future customers will be able to make the most of their time, recharging their car while they go on their lunch break or meet with a client.
It shouldn't be long before drivers can top up their batteries wherever they go.
