cut the plastic so the wire half way up is exposed

Sadly that would be illegal in the UK

Simply cutting the tax on an overpriced vehicle is not going to make it a first choice until it is competitive in price or there is no other alternative.

China also needs to start phasing out excessively large cars and introduce free 'park & ride' for the cities and only allow permit holders in.

London's electric car infrastructure falling into ruin
Infighting and neglect are causing London's prized network of electric car charging points to fall into disrepair, with some areas now offering little to no coverage

At the time of writing, south of the River Thames, between Southwark and London Bridge, for example, 10 of 12 chargers are out of action, while around the Barbican all eight chargers are shown as unserviceable.

Today, China stands on the starting line along with Germany, the United States and Japan.
Driving an e-vehicle in Beijing or Shanghai was fine, he said, because there were plenty of places to recharge the engine.

Charging points were installed along the Beijing-Shanghai expressway, and more on other routes are in the work.
The quick-charge stations are distributed along the expressway stretching over 1200 kilometers. It takes about 30 minutes for electric vehicles to charge up fully.

Much of London's private property is low rise and a property owner would park their car in their garage or on part of the land that comes with their house. So it would be relatively easy for millions of Londoners to run a cable from the house to their car at a small individual cost. So the choice of installing a charging point would be up to the individuals for a significant percentage of the population.

In China, however, the properties are leasehold and typically multi-storey so some form of infrastructure would have to be created so that owners of parking spaces could tap into the service if required. Is there really a demand to justify an investment?

Community charging points are going to provide electricity at a premium. There are going to be issues of location and access coupled with finding something to do while charging the car.  

So all in all this is an issue that will take a lot of thought to get it to work and I, for one, have no plans to spend 3 to 4 times the amount on a car just because it is "greener". I will need one hell of an incentive before I commit.

It can take between 30 minutes and 8 hours to recharge so very inconvenient. While in the short term there will not be an issue in battery cars obstructing a petrol station's forecourt, in the long run the queues to get on the forecourt would be causing major traffic problems.
