The German automaker intends to install thousands of chargers in the United States.
Mercedes-Benz has announced intentions to construct thousands of chargers in the US, joining the escalating battle to establish the viability of the electric vehicle charging industry.
The business is focusing on areas close to important transportation corridors, providing cafés and other amenities, and constructing ultra-fast charging connections to persuade drivers to choose one of its battery-powered cars over alternatives.
This year will be a key year for charging electric vehicles around the world.
According to BloombergNEF, this year will be a turning point for the world’s use of electric car charging, as spending on installation and equipment is expected to surpass $100 billion. This is the amount at which the sector anticipates expanding access to the low-cost capital it requires.
Mercedes intends to collaborate with ChargePoint and the solar energy provider MN8 to install its first facilities in the US this year and then grow to include 10,000 charging points in Europe and China.
Finding the ideal location for daily use, particularly in cities, will be the biggest issue for EV charging participants.
