Will automotive companies and public EV charging providers ever catch up to Tesla’s Supercharger experience?
This edition of Transport Weekly officially closes the book on my three-part 2023 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) experience. By now, what happened at CES has been extensively discussed. Thus, I will use the event as a jumping-off point to, once again, ring the bell for improving public EV charging reliability, uptime and the overall user experience.
While at CES, I also spoke with Arcady Sosinov, CEO of FreeWire Technologies, another rising EV charging provider, which uses integrated batteries in the charger to help provide more charging power and less strain on the grid. Sosinov touched on service as well when discussing the current state of public EV charging. “I’m reading the same things you’re reading, and quality and reliability is the biggest problem in the industry right now,” Sosinov said. “Part of the problem is around who owns and operates and then maintains the stations because in some cases there is not a clear relationship between the owner-operator and who’s providing the service, and that is a business model problem.”
