There will be 40 people wait on line just for one charger to be available
edward lee

Even 31 minutes will not work, think about that if I drove an EV from San Francisco to New York , with a range say 300 miles, I need to charge 8 times at least from SF to New York , with 31 minutes of charging time , it will take me 4 hours to charge the EV, what is worse I also need to wait on line for the Charger to be available , which means if will most likely take me 8 hours just to charge the car on my way, that is not accetable at all

Main issue with this video is the assumption that everybody who owns EVs wants or needs to drive long distances. The vast majority of urban commutes are less than 40 miles. Hence, charging can be handled at home or work charging stations. The calculation should be made of EV and ICE owners to see average daily mileage and what the demand would be. Infrastructure improvement is necessary, but likely not at the vast capacity suggested in this video

In Europe, Tesla CCS is proprietary and i cannot charge my Model 3 on a non-Tesla CCS charger. However you can use Mennekes, which is the European standard. The government sponsored free DC fast chargers have 3 plugs (Chademo, CCS and Mennekes), however the free charging at the shopping centers are almost always only Mennekes.

Inverters are expensive. But they aren't used for DC charging. They are used to convert DC to AC. Rectifiers are used to convert AC to DC and they are dirt cheap. What they use to regulate the charging current could be expensive though...

The government doesn't need to build charging stations. But they should incentivize standardizing plugs. The thing that sucks is that Tesla's plug design is much superior in both current capacity and simplicity compared to the other legacy plugs, but Tesla won't give away its plug patent. Nor will it allow third parties to buy Superchargers with their own capital and participate in the Tesla Supercharger network. Elon says that Tesla's main mission is to accelerate the adaption of electric vehicles. They could have made a huge step in that direction by using their market muscle to get everyone on the planet on the same DC plug standard. And it wouldn't have cost them hardly anything.

@wendoverproductions great production, but riddled with errors. The Bolt (not Volt) *does* have DC Fast Charge capability, just the cheaper trim doesn’t. Similarly, the Leaf has different trims, the base range is ~150, the + trim offers over 200. As others have pointed out, the Volt is a PHEV that has been discontinued. All Level 1 and 2 Charging (the majority of EV infrastructure) is AC. DC Fast chargers can be paired (usually are), like the CPE250 you referenced, thus delivering twice the amount of kW if just one car is using the stations. Nit-picking aside, the biggest hurdle for infrastructure is developers who continue building sites w/o the adequate electrical service to easily retrofit EV stations... soooooo much money would be saved by simply changing the 208/240V building standard to 480V, and pre-running conduit/wire *before* laying asphalt/concrete. Regardless, the vast majority of Charging will take place at the residence... a car is like a house cat, over 90% of its life, it is napping or lounging (parked doing absolutely nothing, or in the case of an EV, charging). J-plug and CCS plugs will win, but there are compelling V2G advantages to CHAdeMO, but this too will evolve. If you haven’t heard of V2G, I think it’ll revolutionize the consumer + utility relationship. Lastly, I’d highly recommend listening to Tony Seba lectures to catch a glimpse at what’s up ahead.

Chevy BOLT not Volt?? Volt is a "plug-in hybrid" and not "EV", has about 300mi range, and hasn't been in production since 2019 and can't charge with a CCS plug?? And "BOLT" is $36,500. Silhouette is a Volt not a Bolt. Not sure which one you are speaking about.

what is going to happen is a huge surge of buying ev's then its going to be a pain to maintain and charge and all of that....then people will buy non ev's while the ev stations are built but no one has any ev's anymore to charge and thus the stations will go out of biz too...and it will just be a huge waste of money the problem is powering the charging stations...that power has to come somewhere...and with democrats and the woke left wanting to get rid of fossil fuels and have no idea what to replace that with but magical unicorn power we are screwed.... i hear not one single woke left democrat speaking anything about fusion power or 6th and 7th gen nuclear power plants or being imaginative and creative and thinking of new ways of making coal almost totally clean..as clean as solar or wind.... instead we have these idiots out there just saying get rid of this and dont know anything...they are just heading our society into total collapse... we need to keep fossil fuels figure out how to make them cleaner and research heavily into new nuclear energy, fusion and far out ideas with making gasoline have zero emissions

OK, here’s something I have been telling people for years in regards to electric cars. Suppose all electric cars were built to accept a standard battery pallet that could be easily removed from the vehicle and a fully charged pallet installed in a matter of minutes. We already have a network of fill stations throughout the country in the form of gas stations who could have a charging bay where charged battery pallets would be kept. You pull in and release the locks on your battery pallet. The attendant rolls out the depleted pallet, which goes onto the charging rack and rolls a fresh, charged pallet into your car. You pay and drive out. Possibly taking no longer than it does to fill your gas tank. Until it is that fast, Americans just ain’t gonna sit around waiting for a car to charge.

Takes , maybe five minutes to fill an empty gas tank and your on your way . Sure beats a ten hour wait for a full charge , why not make standard size battery packs , and swap out low or dead batteries for fully charged ones. You would only have to wait a few minutes . Same cost for everyone for a fully charged battery with a rebate for the amount of charge left in your old battery . That would make it as convenient to take a trip with either gas or electric car

That's all we need more government control, when the market will correct the problem in due time.

Hoping the Us government works out the logistics of infrastructure for electric vehicle charging is a laugh. For being called the United States, there is nothing united about us. Take, for example, the mes that was the 2020 presidential election: See how feds would not step in even when massive evidence accumulated for fraud and conspiracy, instead leaving it up to corrupt individual state legislatures? Yep, that's how coherent and ineffective our system is.

The idea that EVs need 290 miles of range depends on the ignorance of the public. All the range you need is enough to get to the next bathroom or eating stop. My wife and I like to stop every 2 hours (about 160 miles on western interstate). So a range of 200 miles is enough to travel almost anywhere in the USA.

Battery power pack system is better rather than plug in. Where do you plug in when you run out of power in the middle of nowhere, you can be rescued with a replaceable power pack like being saved with a can of petrol. Turn up at a garage and swap your depleted pack for a charged one just as fast as filling with petrol.

The largest issue is the grid capacity. It is estimated that the grid would need to be 3x to 4x the current power to accommodate to concept of 80% EV’s. This does not include the conversion of homes/businesses to all electric power usage. Not to mention the massive addition of land usage for charging parking lots. 80% of homes, on average, park their vehicles on the roadways. Charging these vehicles would require enormous additional infrastructure. There may be a time, but it’s way further than people think.

So i am supposed to spend 40 to 60 k or more to save the environment? That is half the price of my house. These cars pollute just as much when you look at all of the wind mills made of non recyclable petroleum based plastic. The energy used to make solar cells and coal or gas pollution from power plants. The destructive methods to mine lithium and the oil used to make plastic car parts. This is no savings at all financial or environmentally.

For people not in the U.S. infrastructure is up to each state (2019) like Illinois chicago.suntimes.com/2019/10/21/20926058/pritzker-releases-details-rebuild-illinois-road-construction-plan-bridges Pritzker releases details of $23.5B road construction plan, touted as ‘investing on the front end’ The money will go toward maintaining 4,212 miles of roadways and 9.2 million square feet of bridges, according to the governor’s office. ``According to the governor’s office, 75 percent of the funds are allocated to reconstructing and preserving roadways and bridges, while 16 percent is dedicated “to strategically expanding the system in areas where data have shown the investment will be highly effective.” The rest will go to “necessary traffic and safety improvements.” In total, $7.58 billion will go toward roadway reconstruction and preservation, $4.99 billion to bridge replacements and repairs, $1.59 billion to “safety and system modernizations,” $3.08 billion to strategic expansion of the system and $2.11 billion for system support such as engineering and land acquisition, according to the governor’s office.`` & The road and bridge infrastructure spending is separate from building infrastructure money that will be generated by a massive gambling expansion in the state. The roads and bridges are primarily funded by an increase of the state’s gas tax to 38 cents per gallon from 19 cents, with the tax indexed for inflation going forward. it's like this thinking of European union as one government same with u.s. government While each country in the U.U. like the U.S. States has there own rules and regulations Thats how the u.s. works because it's so large the government over sees the states but states are allowed to do there own thing Also 2018 patch.com/illinois/plainfield/illinois-has-2-303-structurally-deficient-bridges-report ``Illinois Has 2,303 Structurally Deficient Bridges: Report``

To say that EVs are comparable in cost to their IC engine counterparts is BS. A Chevy Bolt or Nissan Leaf costs in excess of $30,000 - 35,000 USD. A comparable subcompact car with an IC engine is about $20,000 USD fully loaded. That 10 to 15,000 dollar difference will buy a lot of gasoline even at the Biden regime inflated price we're now paying. I believe EVs are the future, but the government shouldn't be in the business of picking winners and losers. When it does the winners are big businesses and the same politicians who reap the campaign donations, while the cost falls on the taxpayer who is also forced to pay as the consumer. Thus the taxpayer/consumer gets to pay twice for the same benefit while the politicians corporate cronies reap the profits for little or no cost and the politicians themselves simply rake in the cash and call themselves "statesmen."

shure, if yiu have to drive 30 Miles to get to the next supercharger you wont buy an ev, if you havent got the possibility to charge at a wallbox at home. BUT i think it is stupid to keep yourself from buying an ev because you cannot make all the long distance trips with it. you use your car in 90 percent of the time to commute (within even small evs range). why not borrow a ice car for the long trips? i would gladly chang my diesel car once in a while for a week or so with a fency ev.

I for one do not want to wait 30 minutes to charge a car, I would consider it, if I can charge it at the same rate as I fill with gasoline. and the least travel distance would have to be 300 miles with A/C and other use of electrical fixtures(lights, radio, etc.)

The industry needs fast battery swap out technology. Drive in, have a coffee, drive out with another fully-charged battery. Minimum two hours apart. (Fatigue breaks) An annual fee (graded based on usage, ie: a 'plan') Standardisation, competition, competition and competition to avoid the 'corporate loyalty' traps. [Size and placement of battery slot in car, connections, business to business power purchasing] Would drop the initial vehicle purchase price because the batteries are owned by the exchange. No one has to have a charger at home (or forget). Useful innovation spreads quickly. Peer to peer. Batteries are maintained by the owners, regimes, recalls etc. Can also provide a mobile facility for breakdowns or emergencies. 'Planning' a trip electronically can be used to advise the battery 'stations' to prepare for intended usage. Their own swap-out system. Conversely stations can maintain an inventory and users can 'book' a replacement unit.

All of this is precisely why we bought a used Plug in Hybrid, Ford Fusion Energi. #1: plus, it will never get "Stuck" with a dead battery, because it's also a gas powered Hybrid. #2: plus, at least for us. We're a retired couple with a driving range of about 25 miles. We have a secure mail box in a neighboring city, 9 miles away. We go there once a week, usually a morning run. We bought a level 2-240v charger, it will charge our Energi from empty in about 2.5 hours. When we get home from our mail run we plug the Energi in, by the time we eat lunch it's ready to go again, fully charged. so far, we've driven our Energi about 1500 miles, of that over 1000 is in EV mode. It considers EV mode to be 97mpg. It gets average of 42 in Hybrid mode. right now the total average mileage, according to the gauge in the car is over 70 mpg.

Good presentation but it leaves out a key fact. I drive an e-Golf and have no trouble recharging because, unlike gasmobiles, I have a plug in my garage. How many gasmobie owners have a gas pump in their garages? The AAA reports that the average American drives 29.2 miles per day. Even current EVs can do nearly ten times that far. Plug in at the end of the day and you are ready for tomorrow, and you save all that time queuing up in a gas station and filling up.. Charging stations are a concern only for the occasional long road trip.

Not a public sector problem, private industry built the gas stations in practically every country. They will again IF the public want EV , I would suggest the issue is urban vs rural.

Batteries are already at 100 dollar khw range, it’s now 2021. The Tesla Model 3 gets 310 mile range. Tesla has the largest infrastructure in the world at this time. The tipping point for EVs is here already with Ford and GM coming out with long range EVs this year in 2021. Also I noticed the chart they used had listed GMs Chevy Volt which is an hybrid vehicle (out of production) they meant to list the GM Chevy Bolt.

It's going to take many billions of dollars to upgrade the electrical infrastructure grip to handle the additional load of EVs. And that is on top of the normal economic and population growth. Think about it. All the energy being produced by gasoline and diesel will be transferred to the electrical grid. And the EVs will want to drink everyday. No way in the near term. California already has brownouts. There are 15 MILLION cars in California! Can anybody imagine all of them being charged every day on top of the normal load? And this is the major weakness of the EV.

Allow the property owners of all convenience stores/truckstops to have 100% depreciation of the fast charging units in year one of installation. Include in whatever infrastructure bill that makes its way through Congress to provide federal grants to the appropriate electric generation supplier to provide the electric grid/power to the charging stations located on public roads. Allow developers/owners of malls and major retail centers to have the same 100% depreciation and low-interest-rate financing. Potentially similar tax/financing incentives for owners of housing or office complexes over a certain square footage/density.

Excellent video. One question regarding car chargers that needs addressing or confirming is whether there will be enough chargers to satisfy demand, should all cars become electric, and even if there is a common connection standard adopted. I just wonder where all the chargers are going to be placed, as there needs to be many more chargers than there are gas station pumps, because of the much slower turnover due to the time difference between charging with electricity and "charging" with traditional gas. And yet, even in gas stations there can be holdups and queues to get to the pumps. So, will there not be enormous holdups down the line should the combustion engine vehicles be phased out? I think in particular that problems will occur in urban residential areas and in blocks of flats for example where it will be impossible for every vehicle owner to home-charge - unlike a self-contained home with its own garage and home charger - there will be insufficient exterior space to house the number of electric chargers that would be needed. Also, another question that needs addressing is whether, as a vehicle ages, its battery capacity will diminish over time, so that the range of the vehicle will, in say three years, be dramatically reduced. Also, is there a battery "memory" effect that could pose a problem? These questions, and probably many more, need to be properly analysed and explained to the public by governments, who seem to be blindly rushing into this and compelling the general public to adopt it. However, is it really more sparing of the planet's resources given the enormous extra power that will be required in order to charge these vehicles? A lot needs answering.

I don't really see the need of that many superchargers per car, as most people can charge either at home or at their office. I've had my Volvo XC40 P8 since launch last year, and never had the need to charge anywhere else but home and the office. Even now during winter with temperatures down to -15C. With charging through the night you will always start the day with a full battery.

Pathetic infrastructure, expensive vehicles, pathetic mileage, previous failed idea, yes this is a recycled previously failed idea, why do you think it will work 100 years after it first failed.

According to my liberal friend, one reason EV stations aren't everywhere is because they are prohibit expensive. A solution is to have government build them since it would be free then. (They graduated Magna Cum Laude from third grade so they know what they are talking about.)

One big assumption on this video- all vehicle owners drive out of town and road trip every weekend. Most EV owners just accept the fact that if they are road tripping this summer, it won't be their car. If EV's miss the people who drive up to the cabin, then they still get a huge part of the market. Most EV users just accept the fact that their car is a commuting car which matches up to 99% of car use in the US.

And here I am saying "I will never buy another combustion engine again" I get bummed every day i drive my car and hear the noise it makes just running. Been saving up though and plan to get a new model 3 in May.

No one will buy electric cars and never in winter climates it’s just dumb cold weather and batteries don’t go together period

Very simple fix . Put a small generator in the car to charge the batteries that works off a small gas tank . And set it up to charge batteries automatically when a charge is needed. This would extend driveing range by 2 to 3 times the range they have now

Solid state battery will probably be the right answer to these charging problems...... In 2025 - 2030..... Maybe!!!

The real bottleneck is not super chargers, it’s the availability of home charging for people without a driveway.

I hate ruining the party... But $36000 - the tipping point? And then EVs will take over the world? Or just the American market? There are 1.5 billion cars out there. And quite a few of them belong to people who consider taking a loan to buy a new damn fridge. and $30K - is a sum of money that can buy you a house with a plot of land on the outskirts of the EU (Slovakia, Romania, etc) - people earn this money over 2-3 years if they're lucky to get a good job. And how do you think things are going somewhere in Vietnam or Bangladesh? Wake up from your first-world problems guys. Zero emissions, banning internal combustion... So far all the disruptive green technologies and the legislation coming along with them seem like taxing the poor.

Don’t forget you can slow charge at home. 0 minutes from home. Super chargers are only useful for road trips.

when it comes to charging, I'd probably consider switching once charging takes about as long as filling up a fuel tank. which would be 5 minutes, tops.
