All electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) need access to charging stations. The United States has ambitious goals to confront this challenge by building a national network of 500,000 electric vehicle chargers along America’s highways and in communities, as well as growing the EV market to at least 50% of new car sales by 2030. The latest set of actions is aimed at creating a convenient, reliable and Made-in-America electric vehicle (EV) charging network so that the great American road trip can be electrified. The recent Infrastructure Law invests $7.5 billion in EV charging, $10 billion in clean transportation, and over $7 billion in EV battery components, critical minerals, and materials.
The current number of public charging outlets across the United States is just over 138,100. This low number is the reason many are not buying electric vehicles. Under the new Infrastructure Law, each state received funding for electric vehicle charging stations with California leading the way with the most charging stations and charging outlets, followed by New York and Florida, Texas, Massachusetts and Washington state.
The carmakers, led by General Motors, BMW Group, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, and Mercedes-Benz Group will initially invest at least $1 billion in a joint venture that will build 30,000 charging ports on major highways and other locations in the US and Canada.
At Seal Methods, we have positioned our business to be ready for this massive growth and influx. Electric Vehicle Charging Station consists of three main units: Battery, Power Conversion System, and Software.
