Electrify America recently announced the completion of the first of two cross-country routes. It allows EV drivers to travel from coast to coast using the largest open DC fast-charging network in the United States.

Rich Steinberg, Senior Director of Green Cities, Marketing and Communications for Electrify America, is our guest on this episode of The Weekly Driver Podcast.

Electrify America: Coast-to-Coast

Co-hosts Bruce Aldrich and James Raia discuss with Steinberg the new route and the pending second route. We also discuss the overall EV industry, from new vehicles to charging stations to the public’s awareness of the technology.

And with a nod to our podcast’s headquarters in Sacramento, we also discuss the capital city’s status as the Green City/Electrify America national hub.

The debuting route extends from Los Angeles, CA to Washington, DC. It spans 11 states and more than 2,700 miles utilizing Electrify America’s open DC fast-charging network. It’s called the Northern Route.

The first cross-country route travels along Interstates 15 and 70, providing high-powered chargers with speeds up to 350kW. Electrify America charging stations are on average about 70 miles apart in metro areas and near highway routes located conveniently by shopping and dining amenities.

The second route, expected to be completed by the end of summer, is the Southern Route. Electric vehicle travelers can cross the southern portion of the U.S., from Jacksonville to San Diego, on interstate highways starting near I-10 and finishing along I-8.
