Detroit’s GM to set up 40,000 charging stations in US & Canada in boost to EV profile

In what could be vindicated as a vivid illustration of an EV-future in a near term outlook, the United States’ largest conventional carmaker General Motors had issued a statement on Tuesday saying that the Detroit, Michigan-headquartered automaker had been brewing off an option to set off up to 40,000 e-vehicle charging stations in the United States and Canada. In point of fact, latest General Motors move to roll out roughly a 40,000 EV charging stations in Northern America came forth as a part of the carmaker’s plan to pan out a $750 million in fresh investments to solidify its footprints in the rapidly growing e-vehicle industry.
On top of that, recent GM statement that detailed an auspicious act to lay off a substantial scale of upsum on e-vehicles’ charging stations, came forth just a day after Tesla Inc., the e-vehicle industry trailblazer that joined the trillion-dollar club on yesterday, had landed a whopping 100,000 EVs in new orders from a car rental firm Hertz, illustrating an earlier-than-anticipated mainstream adoption of e-vehicles.

Aside from that, General Motors’ latest announcement came against the backdrop of a remark, in which the United States’ largest automaker had been quoted saying a month earlier that it had already signed off accords with a number of companies aimed at providing its e-vehicle customers with an access to more than 60,000 charging stations across N.
America. General Motors, in tandem, had said earlier this month that the automaker had plans to lay off as many as $35 billion in R&D of e-vehicles and self-driving cars over next four years.
