We all know that when something grows there is always some sort of growing paints which show up. Today that is not more true than in the EV charging infrastructure. With exponential growth happening today, its not hard to see why basic maintenance has become an issue. Follow AutoLooks as we take a look at this problem and how it can be resolved.
Tesla was the first one to the market to setup their own charging network and today they are one of the only companies whose network is always working. This could be because of the fact that they were able to grow at a slower rate than the competition, who is not playing catch up. Their ability to properly maintain their existing network while expanding, is a platform more of the competition should emulate.
Today governments around the world, are dumping billions of dollars worth of infrastructure spending into vastly expanding their network of charging stations. With only a few companies out there who were ready to tackle this issue, it now seems that many governments and companies are in over their heads. Guess that's what you get when you show up late to the party.
With gradually shrinking interest in new EV's, due to network issues, this could soon pose a problem for the industry. But with Tesla being well prepared to handle this, they seem to be the only ones able to stand on their own two feet.
Now it is time to see if the competition can learn from the master, the ways of the force, to better handle this growth. Because when your product doesn't operate as planned, your image may be left out in the cold, similar to the consumers who are now waiting for a working charger. So, follow AutoLooks as we dive deep into the issues which plague the expansion of the EV charging network, to see if we can find a way to help these companies with better growth for the future.
