Electric vehicle charging stations and outlets in U.S. - February 2021

In February 2021, the U.S. had almost 100,000 charging outlets for plug-in electric vehicles (EVs). A considerable sum of these chargers is found in California, with almost 32,000 power outlets. Plug-in power stations and charging outlets are essential to increase U.S. plug-in electric vehicle sales.

Outlets supporting the EV boom

Having a network of charging stations and outlets is absolutely necessary for electric vehicles to be practical for most drivers. Therefore, that China is among the leading markets for electric vehicle sales. The country has 210,000 or so electric vehicle chargers (EVSE).

Electric vehicles in California

In terms of U.S. markets, California absolutely outperforms every other U.S. state when it comes to plug-in electric vehicle sales. A fair share of power outlets is still privately owned in homes or workplaces, with the latter playing a large role in attracting commuters towards electric vehicles. With faster charging and cheaper, more efficient batteries, long distance travel becomes possible with plug-in EVs. As a result, the electric vehicle fleet size in California alone is expected to grow to reach almost four million by 2030. California's EV market share came to around eight percent in 2020.
