Infographic: Where Are All the EV Charging Stations?

EV Charging Infographic

The EV industry software gurus at Recargo have spent the last few years compiling a whole bunch of data on electric cars and the infrastructure that supports them. Recently, the company turned all that data into a handy-dandy infographic that does a great job of visually illustrating the dramatic growth of America’s EV infrastructure.

The graph tells us, basically, what we already knew: that the electric and plug-in car market in North America is exploding. Altogether, the plug-in car market has almost quadrupled in size this year alone, with the total number of plug-in cars surpassing the number of American gas stations, if not gas-powered cars – and all of that has been made a bit easier, thanks to the explosive growth of EV infrastructure that’s come along with the growth of EV sales.

You can take a look at Recargo’s infographic, below, which is fed by data from the company’s brilliant PlugShare app. The app, available for iOS and Android, allows users to find charging stations and connect with other plug-in vehicle owners. PlugShare now includes over 20,000 charging stations in the United States and Canada – just like the infographic says! Enjoy!
