Automakers are lining up to flood the market with a litany of new electric vehicles, but as many in the industry know, the currently tiny EV market isn’t going to grow without a serious boom in fast charging infrastructure. But it might be an easier problem to solve than most think.
It’s a weird conundrum: if carmakers want to succeed in attracting new EV buyers, there needs to be fast charging infrastructure in place. But carmakers make cars, and aren’t keen on building infrastructure themselves. So far, Tesla’s the only one to really tackle the problem by developing its Supercharger network at a rapid clip over the last few years.
