Chancellor gives £400 million to boost the number of electric vehicle charging points and says they will pave the way for driverless cars on UK roads by 2021



Electric and driverless cars in the UK have been given a major boost by the Chancellor today. 
A total of £540 million ($716 million) is being invested in electric cars, including £400 million ($530 million) on building more electric car charging points.
While there are currently only 4,500 charging stations in the UK, the investment will enable this number to dramatically increase.  
Philip Hammond said this will pave the way for driverless vehicles, and added that red tape will be cut to allow technology firms to test autonomous cars on public roads by 2021.
