Why SA auto sector prefers private over public e-car charging network
“We’d rather not be dependent on Big Brother,” said Jaguar Land Rover South Africa's Brian Hastie during the Smarter Mobility Conference in Pretoria last week.
Hastie was addressing the issue of private versus public electric car charging point networks in South Africa.
Hastie, who is also the chair of the EV subcommittee at the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa, continued the discussion with CapeTalk's John Maytham on Wednesday's show.
