Challenges

The electric vehicle industry faces several major challenges in terms of customer-friendly charging stations.

I feel like charging stations are only in big cities. What about people who live in rural areas? 🌾

It's annoying when you go to charge your car and the station is occupied by an electric scooter. 😤
I heard some countries have solar powered charging stations. Why can't America have that? 🤷‍♂️
It's good to see more electric vehicles on the road, but we need more charging options. 🔌
Why aren't there charging stations at rest stops? It seems like the perfect place for them. 🤔
Why don't manufacturers sell charging stations with cars like they sell gas cans? 🤷‍♀️
What's the point of having a charging station if it takes hours to charge your car? Are they slow on purpose? 🤔

It's a good thing Tesla has their own charging network. Other companies need to follow their lead. 👍

How hard can it be to make a simple app that shows charging station locations and availability? 🤔
These charging stations should have wifi or something to do while you wait. Just saying. 🤷‍♂️

How hard can it be to put some shade over the charging stations? It gets hot out here. 🥵
Why don't charging stations have touchscreens that can show you more than just your charge level? 🤔
I think charging stations should have a reward system. Like, discounts or coupons for charging your car there. 🤑
Why don't they have more signs pointing to charging stations on the highways? 🤷‍♀️
