Electrify America has announced plans to cover 47 states and the District of Columbia with its electric vehicle charging stations by 2022.
The new plans will see the company expand into four new states by the beginning of next year, including Hawaii, South Dakota, Wyoming and Vermont. At the same time, it aims to increase the number of facilities installed in locations that currently hold a smaller amount of stations such as Montana, Minnesota and New Hampshire, increasing its existing 2,600 individual fast chargers across the country.
“With our rapid station deployment, we are on track to have 800 charging stations with about 3,500 chargers open or under development by the end of this year – delivering on our commitment to make EV driving easier and more accessible,” said the company’s CEO and president Giovanni Palazzo. “We’re proud to be on the forefront of expanding the nation’s EV charging infrastructure and are excited to see our continued growth, as we help meet EV demand and climate priorities set by the Administration.”
Elsewhere in the automotive industry, Ford is doubling down on its efforts to develop electric car batteries.
