The oil companies are sleeping. GM is obviously going all in to vprovude the charging service. Convenience will matter, but then with the majority of the population having a dealership at hand, they will do just fine while everyone else may well be chasing locations.
The sheer weight of this global conversion to EVs has not really been felt yet. Yet is happening now and very soon the EV will dominate the car universe however much you are disapointed.
The selling price already tells us we will see easy cash on cash displacement and even cash on cash advantage to the EV. This revolution compares to the displacement of the horse and buggy.
After all this we will have the EV gravity car that floats a few inches above the surface.

General Motors is planning to install up to 40,000 electric vehicle chargers across the U.S. and Canada as part of a new community charging program.
The vehicle maker said Tuesday that the program will start next year. It will work with its dealers to have the charging stations in locations including workplaces, multi-unit dwellings, sports and entertainment venues and college and universities. According to the company, nearly 90% of the U.S. population lives within 10 miles of a GM dealer.
The charging stations will not be limited to those that have GM vehicles. They will be available to anyone that has an electric vehicle, regardless of the brand.
The program is part of a series of investments the Detroit company announced earlier this month. GM then pledged to increase its investment in EV charging networks by nearly $750 million through 2025.
The announcement comes a day after Hertz ordered 100,00 Model 3 small cars from Tesla—and announced plans to set up its own charging network—due to growing consumer interest in electric vehicles.
