With today’s increasing gas prices, you may have noticed more electric cars on the road and have been curious about the popularity of electric vehicles.
“EVs, including battery-electric and plug-in hybrids, accounted for 7.2% of the global car sales in the first half of 2021….Moreover, in the whole of 2021, EVs more than doubled, accounting for almost 9% of the global car market. Also, they more than tripled their market share compared to 2019. In fact, all the net growth in global car sales in 2021 came from EVs.”1
So, as electric car sales increase, the need for electric car charging stations also increases. While electric car owners can charge their vehicles at home, they will also be on the lookout when they’re on the road for a place where they are willing to wait while their car is charging. Why not invite potential customers to visit your business by offering electrical car charging stations?
