Don’t blow up your buggy – new labelling for power supplies to electric cars

Europe has adopted a European Standard* that will ensure that in future the labelling of electric vehicle power supply is compatible right across Europe. The deployment of the new labels on electrical vehicles and power supply stations for electrical vehicles should be complete by February 2021.

NCF says “Cross border compatibility of labelling is essential for the United Kingdom and will be implemented within the United Kingdom, even though we are leaving the European Union. It will make it easier for users of electrical vehicles to know which connecting points are compatible with the vehicle. This is especially important for drivers travelling cross-border”.

Gentle reader – those pre-Brexit benefits keep rolling in.

*EN 17186 Identification of vehicles and infrastructures compatibility for consumer information on electric vehicle power supply. The new standard provides for harmonised compatibility labelling across Europe supporting implementation of Article 7 of Directive 2014/94/EU by EU Member States, using a similar approach to EN 16942:2016 ‘Fuel identifiers’.
