Apart from politics, there are other factors as to why Americans haven’t taken to EVs.

Alyssa Altman, head of transportation and mobility at consulting company Publicis Sapient explained: “Historically, there simply haven’t been enough charge points.

“Potential EV customers are concerned with keeping their vehicle juiced up for long trips, and for some journeys in the US, the lack of charging stations makes this impossible.”

Her company’s figures indicate that the majority of chargers are located in areas where there are already a lot of EVs, like California.
