Is Electrify America gaining some ground on the Tesla Supercharger Network?

Posted on May 19, 2022 by Charles Morris

Tesla’s Supercharger network may still be the gold standard of highway fast charging, but Electrify America is offering some mighty strong competition. The nationwide charging network reports that it provided 1.45 million customer charging sessions in 2021—a colossal increase from the 268,000 it recorded in 2020.

The company dispensed 41 GWh of energy in 2021, and estimates that this represents more than 145 million EV miles driven, and 5.7 million gallons of gas saved.

Electrify America currently has 800 EV charging stations and about 3,500 individual chargers, either open or ready to open. The network features DC fast chargers offering charging speeds of 150 and 350 kW, the fastest speeds available today.

EA expects to have more than 1,800 total charging stations with over 10,000 chargers in the US and Canada by 2026.

“The combination of our rapidly expanding charging network, plus the growth and availability of all-new electric vehicles, is accelerating the transition to eMobility,” said Senior Director of Business Development & Marketing Robert Barrosa. “Electrify America is working with automotive manufacturers to smooth the transition from gas to electric by offering integrated access on the Electrify America network.  We are seeing this positively impact vehicle adoption, as first-quarter battery-electric vehicle sales reached a record 5.2% market share of new vehicle sales in the US.”
