Answered By:

TfL is working with suppliers to deliver 150 rapid charge points by the end of 2018. Ninety of these rapid charge points will be dedicated to taxis.  By January 2018, the aim is that at least 70 rapid charge points will be fully operational, with the rest of the network operational by the end of 2018.

We are currently identifying potential charge point locations on TfL, borough and private land.

These sites will be enabled for use by upgrading power capacity. The first rapid charge points will be delivered by summer 2017.
