Electric Vehicle Fast-Charging Ports (per capita)
The graph displays the number of public fast-charging and level 2 ports for charging electric vehicles per 100,000 people in the selected states. Public level 2 ports are more common than fast-charging ports. While most vehicle charging currently occurs at home or at work, a network of public charging stations is necessary to enable long-distance travel and provide additional options for drivers without home charging. A single charging station may have multiple ports, allowing multiple vehicles to recharge simultaneously. AC Level 2 charging stations add 10 to 20 miles of driving range per 1 hour of charging. DC fast charging stations add, on average, 60 to 80 miles of driving range per 20 minutes of charging.
