    The End Of The Gas Station

    The rise of electric cars will kill the gas station; The vehicles of the future will charge almost everywhere.

    Roberto Baldwin, June 27, 2017 (EnGadget)

    “…One of the biggest complaints you hear about electric vehicles is that you can't refuel them the same way as a gas car. That's true now and will be true for a while. DC fast charging and Tesla's Superchargers reduce the amount of time it takes to recharge, but the experience is nowhere near as quick as filling your car [at a gas station. But] once you go electric, you're not going to need a corner gas station to charge your future car because you're going to be ‘refueling’ it everywhere…[Home may] be the main source of car charging…[T]he slow trickle of a 120-volt standard outlet will add 48 miles to the battery of the Chevy Bolt over 12 hours…[A $450 to $500 level 2 charger] is quicker…[and breakeven on the cost could come as soon as] the first year of EV ownership…More and more employers are offering charging stations for their staff…[Leading charger makers see] about 80 percent of charging coming from at home or work…[More will happen in] retail parking lots…[Your grandchildren might giggle about stopping at something called a gas station to put] a liquid in a car…” click here for more
