EM’s idea of turning the world onto sources of renewable energy really requires the success of all EVs, not just Tesla. I love the exclusivity of the Tesla charging stations, but why can’t EV manufacturers decide on one standard technology for EV charging stations? It seems like this is another Betamax vs VHS fight.
If the industry could decide on one supercharging standard, then charging stations could grow to be as ubiquitous as gas stations for all EVs. This would make charging so much easier and completely eliminate the “range anxiety” that some of us feel when driving to areas not supported by superchargers. EM could go a long way by sharing Tesla SC technology with the other serious EV manufacturers and sharing the cost of building superchargers nationwide.
It would be nice if SCs were available at every highway exit, just the same as with gas stations.
