BMW & VW Announce plans for 100 new charging stations

German automakers BMW and Volkswagen announced this week a joint venture to build 100 new charging stations across the US.

The pair will be teaming up with ChargePoint, the biggest charging network for electric vehicles, who will help identify both gaps and popular charing sites within their network for possible additions.

“This project is another important step in the development of the U.S. e-mobility infrastructure that makes longer distance travels a real option for consumers,” Robert Healey, head of EV Infrastructure at BMW North America, said in a statement.
