Wrapping Up

 

With the ever-increasing EVs (also known as “alternative fuel vehicles”), the demand for EV charging infrastructure (such as a commercial charging station) is also growing worldwide.

 

According to a research study, “the global sales of electric vehicles would account for more than 30% of total vehicle sales by 2030.”

 

Another research study indicates that “more than 50% of car buyers prefer an electric vehicle (including fully electric, plug-in hybrid, and hybrid powertrains) for their next purchase.”

 

Consequently, there are potential opportunities for simplifying the EV charging experience and accelerating the growth of EV charging infrastructure. Let us look at some prominent EV charging networks:

 

Tesla

 

Tesla Supercharger is a 480-volt DC fast-charging technology built by Tesla, Inc.—an industry leader in EV manufacturing.
