With about 112,000 electric vehicle charging points on their territory, the Netherlands have almost 30% of all electric vehicle (EV) chargers in the European Union (EU). That’s 1/3 more than Germany, three times more than the UK, and nearly 70 times more than Romania, despite the latter being seven times bigger in size.
In the last decade or so, motorists in the Netherlands have witnessed a substantial increase in the number of public and semi-public charging stations across the country. In 2014, for example, there were around 12,000 EV chargers on Dutch roads. Fast-forward to the present day, another 100,000 have been added.
