In an effort to bolster Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) infrastructure, increase education and outreach on the subject, and improve access to these groundbreaking vehicles — Electrify America is investing $2 billion over the next 10 years.

With the goal of making coast-to-coast all-electric travel more accessble, these sites will be located no more than approximately 120 miles apart and on average most will be just 70 miles apart. To help bolster the appeal of electric vehicles, a national awareness and education campaign will be developed and directed at car buyers not yet driving EVs. The future of hybrid and electric travel has never been brighter.
