Arizona builds on EV prominence by increasing charging stations statewide on major interstates
4 Nov 2022
Arizona has earned a national reputation as an electric vehicle (EV) heavyweight, with a vibrant ecosystem of EV manufacturers and showrooms and above-average EV ownership.
Plans are in place to extend that leadership even further.
In September, Arizona became one of the first states in the U.S. to have its Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plan approved by the Federal Highway Administration. The plan, which is spearheaded by the Arizona Department of Transportation and included input from agencies and stakeholders such as the Arizona Commerce Authority, positions Arizona to secure $76.5 million to build out its electric-vehicle charging network along interstate highways.
