PlugShare gathers a lot of data. And it presents the data in a useful way in quarterly reports … that cost $2,500. I’m sure the most recent quarterly report is quite interesting, but putting down $2,500 certainly couldn’t be justified by CleanTechnica. That said, we did run across a cool chart (via EV Annex & Charged) that seemed worth sharing.
Well, I think that basically speaks for itself.
I assume that the strong demand for super-fast charging is part of that, and the satisfaction of using that, but another obvious factor has to be reliability and availability. Other EV charging stations are a bit infamous for being out of order, blocked, locked up, etc. I doubt speed is the key factor tempting early adopters to rate charging stations as “poor” or “very poor.”
