If you’re shopping for a car, you may know that two new electric vehicles are coming in 2017: the Chevy Bolt and the next-gen Toyota Prius plug-in. The reality is, the EV market has not dazzled. When President Obama entered office, he envisioned 1 million sales by 2015. Yesterday, the U.S. hit half that number. So today, the White House announced a new measure to bring more charging stations to the country, notably on key highway corridors. The question is, how much these new charging stations will jolt demand for electric vehicles?
