Are you an electric vehicle owner that lives near the I-5? If you are, then it looks like you’re in for some good news as AeroVironment is the company that has been charged with wiring-up I-5 and U.S. 2 with electric charging points for your electric vehicle.
As we know when it comes to EVs, they generally do not have great range, which is one of the things EV manufacturers are working on right now. In the meantime for EV owners, regularly charging your vehicle or making sure you leave the house with a full charge is a must if you don’t want your EV to die in the middle of the highway. Of course driving within the confines of the city limits is an entirely different story. However, charging stations are not as commonly found as gas stations, which mean that long, outstation journeys must be planned beforehand and calculated, to make sure that your vehicle will always have access to charging stations along the way.
The good news for EV owners who live or travel along the I-5 is that the 276 miles of the interstate between Canada and Oregon will be peppered with electric charging points for your car. AeroVironment will be installing 9 of these stations, which roughly translates to about one station every 40-60 miles. For Nissan Leaf owners this is good news as the driving range for the Leaf is said to be about 70 miles, which means there is little chance of your vehicle dying before the next charging point. These implementations are expected to roll out over the course of the next six months.
