The U.S. is a vast country, with each state playing by its own rules to a certain extent. With EVs relying heavily on a network of charging stations to operate effectively, there’s still a long way to go before the country is really ready for a large rollout of electric vehicles. Zutobi, an online driver’s education platform, has crunched the numbers and looked at how well the different states are doing, which ones have the infrastructure, and how EV take-up currently compares to other vehicles.
Zutobi also looked at how the numbers have changed since its last edition of the 2021 U.S. Electric Vehicle Charging Point Report:
- The number of EVs in the U.S. has increased by 87.5% since the last edition of the report, increasing from 543,610 to just over a million today.
- However, the growth in public charging outlets hasn’t quite matched that, growing from 98,422 to 128,554 over the same period, an increase of around 31%.
North Dakota, Wyoming and Mississippi came out on top when measuring states with the most charging points per EV. At the bottom of the list are New Jersey, Arizona and Hawaii.
