WASHINGTON—Today, seven automakers announced a joint investment of at least $1 billion to build 30,000 fast charging stations. Electrification Coalition Executive Director Ben Prochazka responded:

“Americans are increasingly seeing the benefits of electric vehicles, including cleaner air, improved public health, and stronger national security. With the increased demand, though, we also need charging infrastructure to meet the demand.

“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act are investing billions into increasing charging infrastructure, but private investment is also critical to ensuring that Americans can access reliable charging stations along highways and in communities. We applaud BMW, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes-Benz and Stellantis for doing their part to build more charging stations. As charging infrastructure is built, more Americans will transition to EVs, confident they can find charging when and where they need it.

“Through the leadership of these federal policies, states and cities around the country and the private sector, we have a generational opportunity to make sure our future is electric.”
