Coventry City Council provides the most electric car chargers in mainland Britain, according to new research.

The analysis by Jeep found the council provides one charging device for every 2.3 plug-in cars, compared to the average of one for every 15 cars registered in the UK.

However, the Outer Hebrides provided even better infrastructure with one charger for every 2.13 cars.

A survey by Jeep found 79% of motorists think the Government should be investing more in improving public charging infrastructure and 76% said there should be a greater investment in on-street charging where motorists don't have off-street parking.

Damien Dally, Jeep country manager, said: ’With 71% of petrol, diesel and hybrid drivers covering fewer than 30 miles per day on average, a plug-in hybrid would give them the benefit of zero emission driving while providing the comfort of a petrol engine to fall back on for longer journeys as well.’
