Why? Cuz it's "modern", of course! How silly to even ask.
"includes two power-points" ? We have come a long way sence then.
Yeahbut... Look at the lack of counter space. Methinks the NEC would require only 3 receptacles there even now (none required over the sink or cooktop).
I love to look at stuff like this, which is not to say I would want to cook with it. I've seen a 30" unit from the '50s, with 2-element cooktop, super-dinky sink, and fridge below. Not very practical, but it could enable one to boast of having the Swiss Army Knife of major appliances!

Try as I might, I can only see one. The unit to the right of the stove is the traditional British "cooker control unit," with an isolator for the stove and an integral receptacle, something like this .
I have a townhouse here, that when I moved in, the kitchen had 4 socket-outlets, 2 of which were on the Range, but due to the way the range had been built into the window-sill, you couldn't use either. The other was for the Fridge. Things have changed a lot here since though, the whole place only had 8 socket-outlets (all singles), now it boasts new lighting (Down-lights) and about 25 socket-outlets and a new switch-board. This place was built in the 1960's and it's plain to see how loadings in Domestic places have changed even in that period of time.
