With the Government planning on banning the sale of new petrol and diesel cars by 2040, it is expected that there will be at least one million electric cars on UK roads by 2050. This increase in electric vehicle sales has resulted in a higher demand for electric vehicle charging points and bays, with retail stores, petrol stations and private businesses al looking to provided dedicated parking bays for EV cars.
Types of Electric Vehicle Bay Markings
With no official regulations on the size and format of EV bay markings it is important that each bay is carefully planned to deliver the following:
- Ideally, each charge-point should be positioned to serve as many EVs as possible.
- Most cables are between 4-8 metres long, so that let that be your guide when planning layout.
- EV bays need to be clearly differentiated from other parking bays by colour, signage and EV logos on the surface or flooring, so they are clearly visible to drivers and pedestrians.
