BBC News - Two charging stations that are thought to be the first street recharging points for electric cars in the UK have been unveiled in London.
They will join 48 free charging stations to be found in 13 of the council's car parks.
A spokesman said they were being introduced because electric cars were "ideally suited" to city driving.
This is a major step towards building an infrastructure for plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles. The rest of the world should take note.
