There Are Over 38,000 Electric Vehicle Chargers in The US Alone

Want to get charged up by some electric vehicle (EV) data? You’ve come to the right place.

  • There are over 38,000 EV chargers in the US available to the public.

  • Most EVs can be charged with a standard 120 V (Level 1) outlet.

  • Car owners can install a dedicated 240 V (Level 2) outlet or charging system to charge their EVs more quickly.

  • Apartment or condominium EV charging stations are becoming more common.

  • Most EV models go above 200 miles on a full charge (a typical household travels 50 miles per day).

  • Electric vehicle range can decrease by 40% due to cold weather and the use of automobile heaters. There are more than 45 PHEV (hybrid) and EV models on the market (with more on the way).

  • Charging times can range from under 20 minutes to 20 hours or more, depending on how depleted the battery is, how much energy it holds, the type of battery, and the type of charging equipment.

  • Extreme fast chargers (XFC), capable of power outputs of up 350 kW and higher, are rapidly being deployed in the US.
