South Korea has added as many as 100 new electric vehicle charging stations in the last few months, according to the country’s Ministry of Environment.
The new charging stations are on highways connecting Seoul and southern cities, as well as at public offices, parks, bus terminals, and car parks in provincial cities.
They are spaced around 80 kilometres apart and are equipped with multiple charging sockets to serve different EV models sold in the country.
They are currently free of charge, but a service fee will be charged from next year.
Since the first charging post was installed in 2011, 337 stations have been set up throughout South Korea so far, including the new 100 quick charging points. There are plans to install another 300 charging stations by 2017.
