The number of UK homes for sale with an electric car charging point on the premises, or in a nearby street, has jumped sixfold in a year, according to Rightmove.
The property website said the proportion of homes with, or close to, this green feature lifted by 541% in 12 months on its listings pages, with a third of them added since the start of September.
The report comes as world leaders gather for COP26 climate change talks in Glasgow between 31 October and 12 November.
The study analysed the number of properties for sale that mention an electric car charging point in the property description for prospective buyers.
It excluded new build homes in order to determine rises in older homes that have charging points installed or available nearby.
