There's a looming problem with the auto industry's grand EV plans. Automakers are spending huge sums to bring a slew of new electric vehicles to market over the next few years.

Ford Motor alone expects to spend more than $50 billion through 2026 to ramp up EV production around the world. General Motors said it will spend $35 billion through 2025, and Volkswagen said it expects to spend almost $200 billion on EVs and related software through 2028. But Americans are still hesitant to buy in, and largely because of concerns around charging.

Survey after survey has shown that worries about charging — specifically, public charging — is holding buyers back from electric vehicles. Public charging stations aren't quite like gas stations, in the sense that many EV owners only use them occasionally.

Most EV owners do most of their charging at home, with a Level 2 home charger provided by the automaker or a third party. That won't work for everyone, of course. And even EV owners who charge at home use public chargers on occasion. Some EV motorists charge at work. Workplaces that have employee parking often have chargers available, as do a growing number of hotels, shopping centers and other places where people might park an EV for a few hours. Often called "destination chargers," these charge at rates similar to what you'd get with home chargers, adding around 35 miles of range per hour.

You may need an app from a charging company to use them, but the process is mostly painless — assuming the chargers are working. #eddavidson #safedy #thereyahaveit #ev #evcharging
