According to White House infrastructure coordinator Mitch Landrieu, the new standards will make charging an electric car as easy as filling a gas tank, regardless of car model or location. The plan also includes commitments from Tesla to build a network of at least 7,500 chargers that will be open to all electric car drivers by the end of 2024. The administration’s goal is to oversee a national network of 500,000 electric vehicle chargers by 2030, as part of the the bipartisan infrastructure law allocating $7.5 billion to EV charging efforts EV charging company Ford use.
