Chargepoint wants to put superchargers in their place
While many potential EV chargers are obsessed with the availability of public fast-charging networks, most people do the majority of their charging at home.
“Why would you have a supercharger at work?” asks Michael Hughes, chief revenue officer at US charging firm Chargepoint. “Somehow, we have to get that message across. It is a hard one.”
With so much talk about fast charging, particularly in the wake of US OEMs Ford and GM’s respective tie-ups with Tesla and its NACS-based supercharger network, it is easy to forget that only a small fraction of EV charging happens quickly.
