The progressive transition from conventional to electric vehicles is reflected by the proliferation of charging stations around the country, from rest stops to fast-food restaurants.
Expectedly, more will open up around the state in the near future. For instance, Ohio has just been granted federal funds to assist in constructing EV charging stations around the state.
The Biden-Harris Administration approved $1.5 billion to all 50 states on Tuesday. Notably, this is just a part of a $5 billion plan for the next five years.
With the Toledo AAA location, Bob Kazmierczak claimed that more drivers are shifting to electric vehicles due to the increasing gas prices and aiming to “go green.”
This is supported by a recent study that revealed that one-quarter of Americans plan to buy an EV as their next vehicle.
Kazmierczak further noted that it is only logical for our automobiles to evolve as technology advances.
“All the safety pieces, right? So, all the automated driver assist systems, the automatic braking and adaptive cruise control and crash avoidance,” he said. “So, all of those things that we’ve been seeing come about over the years are now being rolled into one, which is really neat.”
On the other hand, Kazmierczak encourages customers to research electric vehicles in general and the specifics of their selected model beforehand.
“Make sure it fits your needs. Look at its charging capabilities, make sure that you have the ability to do so at home if that’s possible,” he explained. “Also, it may take a little more planning.”
Furthermore, he urges EV owners to download the AAA app to easily locate the nearest EV charger while waiting for the development of more charging stations.
