A few days ago, we learned that the number of charging stations in Manhattan, New York, has exceeded the number of gas stations by 10 times. As a reference, Manhattan currently has 320 public charging stations, while the number of gas stations is only 29. This means that it is much easier for car owners to find a charging station than a gas station.
However, we learned that what happened in Manhattan is just a special case. In New York, there are still more gas stations than charging stations. Due to the low profit of gas stations, the high land price in Manhattan has "persuaded" many gas stations away. At the same time, there is not enough space to build gas stations in Manhattan. The layout of the charging station should be more flexible. For example, it can be built in the existing infrastructure, such as the interior of the parking lot.
We also learned that the relevant responsible person said that he would like to build more charging stations on the street, so as to better serve the owners of electric vehicles; At the same time, it is worth mentioning that the number of charging stations does not mean that charging is easy. We have learned that many charging parking spaces are occupied, and there are also charging piles damaged. (Source: Andy Du, Home of Automobiles)
