A new coast-to-coast network of electric vehicle charging stations in the United States has been unveiled by Electrify America.
Electric vehicle (EV) drivers in the US can now travel from coast-to-coast using the largest open DC fast-charging network.
The route from Los Angeles, CA to Washington, DC is one of two cross-country routes in the company’s initial plans to expand its open DC fast-charging network. It spans 11 states and over 2,700 miles, with Electrify America charging stations on average about 70 miles apart.
Electrify America’s charging points are compatible with all makes of electric cars.
Anthony Lambkin, director of operations at Electrify America, said: “Electrify America’s primary goal has always been to advance electric vehicle adoption in the US, and that starts by instilling feelings of confidence and freedom in consumers when it comes to EV ownership. The completion of our first cross-country route is a significant step towards that goal – by making long-distance travel in an EV a reality, we hope to encourage more consumers to make the switch to electric.”
Electrify America already offers a major route covering much of the East Coast via Interstate 95 from Portland, ME to Miami, FL, and has completed a West Coast route along Interstate 5 from Seattle, WA to San Diego, CA.
Later this year, Electrify America will open another route between San Diego, California, and Jacksonville, Florida.
By the end of 2021, Electrify America plans to install or have under development approximately 800 total charging stations with about 3,500 DC fast chargers.
