33 363 points de recharge ouverts au public en France

33,363 charging points open to the public in France

As of May 1, 2021, France had 33,363 charging points open to the public, an increase of +7% compared to our previous barometer (February 2021). While this increase marks a slight upturn in deployments compared to 2020, an acceleration seems increasingly necessary given the deteriorating ratios of the number of vehicles per charging point. The publication of long-awaited regulatory texts, such as the revision of Decree No. 2017-26 of January 12, 2017 on charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, should open up a new dynamic.

At the same time, it should be noted that 90% of users of electrified rechargeable models recharge their vehicles at home or at their place of work: this is why, in addition to public recharging, it is necessary to develop private recharging options, particularly in condominiums.
