THERE ARE ELECTRIC CHARGING STATIONS IN 81 PROVINCES
According to EMRA data, 81 provinces are equipped with charging stations. While the total number of sockets providing charging services was around 2,400 in October last year, this number reached 7,581 for slow charging (AC) and 2,995 for fast charging (DC).
Thus, the number of charging points for electric vehicles across Turkey increased to 10 thousand 576 as of November 20. Thus, the number of sockets increased more than 3 times in 1 year.
