Date lodged: 14 November 2017

To ask the Scottish Government how it will roll out electric charging points for vehicles in remote and rural areas, and what the timescale for this work is.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 23 November 2017

As detailed in September’s Programme for Government announcement, in order to lead the way on electric vehicles, we plan to expand our electric vehicle charging infrastructure between now and 2022, whether in rural, urban or domestic settings. We will continue to build on the actions set out in the "Switched on Scotland" action plan launched in June this year and further announcements on timescales will be made in the coming months.
