Video: Animated Maps: Electric Vehicle Charging Stations and U.S. Interstates, 2022
Fewer than one percent of the cars currently registered in the U.S. are electric, but the number is expected to grow by orders of magnitude by 2030. Full-scale adoption will require a vigorous and exhaustive network of charging stations. To get a big-picture sense of the current state of this network, we imagined a series of cross-country drives on the nation’s interstate highway system. We found that with the right amount of planning, it’s possible to traverse the country without spending a dime on gas, though in certain states drivers will encounter significant gaps.
