It's 2018, electric cars are a thing, and they're affordable.

But some people don't like that the charging points aren't as common as the common petrol station.

Thanks to a new team up with Volkswagen, 600 Tesco branches will be lucky enough to have the chargers installed - with the goal of having them all up and running by 2020.

Installation is being done by PodPoint, the largest independent public charging operator, with the promise that anyone charging up using a 7kW charger won't have to pay.
