As the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) gains momentum, various industries are exploring ways to integrate EV charging and infrastructure into their operations. The automotive industry is eager to pave the way and has started investing in charging infrastructure to meet the demands of their customers and boost sales. Some investments include:
Automotive dealerships are installing EV chargers to meet the growing demand for electric vehicles and provide customers with the convenience of charging their EVs while shopping or servicing their vehicles. Installing EV chargers allow dealerships to remain competitive and meet the growing demand for electric vehicles.
Automakers are also partnering with EV charging companies to install charging stations for their brand dealerships, providing them with options that meet their individual EV integration needs. However, installing EV chargers at dealerships has revealed new hurdles. Dealerships have found the process to be complicated as it has required coordination with utilities and city planning to meet demands.
Further, in order to meet automaker requirements for the continued sale of EVs, auto dealerships across the country are gearing up to install Level 2 and Level 3 (DC Fast) EV chargers. With most automakers issuing tight time frames to install these EV chargers by the beginning of 2024, dealers are running into supply chain bottle necks, permitting and design delays, and long lead times when it comes to sourcing the electrical infrastructure required to power these new chargers.
As more companies and governments invest in electric vehicles, auto dealerships are presented with a unique opportunity to bridge the gap for their customers by investing in charging infrastructure.
