Electrify America continues to develop its network of chargers for electric vehicles. The company plans to install charging points in four other states by early 2022: Hawaii, South Dakota, Wyoming and Vermont. This will bring Electrify America’s coverage area to 47 states and the District of Columbia.
Elsewhere, the company will add more stations later this year in states that have a small number of chargers, such as Montana, Minnesota, and New Hampshire. There are also plans to significantly expand the network in Washington, which has set a target for every light vehicle in the 2030 model year and later that is sold, purchased, or registered as an electric vehicle there. Electrify America plans to have 800 charging stations with around 3,500 chargers open or under construction by the end of 2021.
Having easy access to charging stations is essential for widespread EV adoption, so rapidly expanding networks is a positive step. This week, GM announced a partnership with seven charging networks that will provide drivers of the company’s electric vehicles with access to nearly 60,000 electric vehicle chargers in the United States and Canada.
