OEMs worldwide are pushing for more EV options in the coming years. Businesses and policymakers are working on charging infrastructure to support the two million EVs currently in the US and the many more that are sure to come.
🔵🔋Ford's BlueOval is currently the largest public charging network in the US. The company plans to increase EV spending by $20B over the next ten years, with "charging deserts" playing a priority.
🌵🏢GM also focuses on potential charging deserts and is planning to leverage its extensive dealership network as local charging partners. Additionally, the Ultium Charge 360 program will make KWh cheaper and home, apartment, or work charging more accessible.
🌩🕸Tesla has an extensive charging network, and to ensure availability is opening to all vehicles. Musk says the company developed its Supercharger network because no infrastructure existed before, but now with more EVs in the market, it makes sense to open the network to all.
🍁🏡VinFast's Canadian arm will give customers three years of free network charging or a free home charger. The home chargers are 40% faster but the network has over 6000 locations. Users will also receive a year of the automaker's Smart Driving package.
