Dallas Has Second Most EV Charging Stations. Electric Vehicles? Not so Much
It seems that a lot of electric vehicle charging stations have been popping up in Dallas of late -- at gas stations, grocery stores, possibly soon at City Hall -- and now we know that yes, there are a lot.
Xatori, an app-maker, released a list yesterday of the cities with the most EV charging stations for every 100,000 residents. Portland, as you might assume, comes out on top, but No. 2 is something of a shocker: Dallas. A bit further down the list, coming in at No. 6, is Austin.
That's means Dallas is ready for the electric car boom. A glance at traffic is enough to tell it hasn't come yet. Maybe once there's an oil crisis and we develop technology to make the stations obsolete.
