BMW, VW to create EV express charging corridors on coasts

BMW and Volkswagen announced at The Washington Auto Show (WAS) that they were working with ChargePoint, the largest electric vehicle charging network, to create express charging corridors along the east and west coasts. In the initial phase, ChargePoint aims to install nearly 100 DC Fast chargers on the two coasts. The chargers will be available to any EV, not just BMWs and Volkswagens. EVs will be able to get an 80-mile range from a 30-minute charge.

–Our goal is to get everyone behind the wheel of an EV,” said Pasquale Romano, ChargePoint CEO. He wants people to be able to use an EV as their only car.
