Remember how high the initial demand was for hybrid vehicles? Now the growing demand for pure electric vehicles (EVs), is making things even more hectic. It’s a good thing the number of electric car charging stations is rising too.


Nationwide there are currently twice as many charging stations (roughly 4,500) as there are E-85 ethanol stations, with the government finalizing a proposal to expand the number to nearly 14,000 in the near future. The growing proliferation of charging stations means that current electric vehicles will be able to travel farther and more frequently.


Ultimately, the combination of more charging stations, increased vehicle range, lower electric car prices and improvements to the national power grid may all add up to a clean, bright future for the electric car.
