Infographic: Car Charging Stations Increase 10X in 2 years

A recent infographic (below) about electric car charging stations really caught our eye, explaining the evolution of electric car charging stations and the absolutely mental rate of expansion. Somehow, I don’t think that anyone realizes how quickly electric car charging stations are going up, even people like us living in California. San Diego is one of the few ‘electric’ cities in the nation, and we have a plethora of Teslas, Leafs and Volts roaming around the city. If you go to LA or the Bay Area you will likely see more of the same with a slightly different mix.

In the past, we’ve had conversations with Nissan (Leaf), Tesla (Model S) and GM (Volt and Spark EV) about the expansion of electric car charging networks and the importance of a solid charging network. Many potential electric car buyers find that their biggest concern after the limited range of some of these vehicles is the ability to quickly and easily charge them outside of the home. Owners of GM’s Chevy Volt don’t have this concern since they can just pull up to a gas station and solve their problem that way, but in the future there will be more fully electric vehicles with such concerns. The lack of a solid network in past years made owning an electric car a niche proposition, one for people that were concerned about gas prices and the environment.
