Boulder Colorado Electric Vehicle ChargingHere at Fisher Honda in Boulder, CO, we’re thrilled about the recent announcement of a major collaboration in the electric vehicle (EV) universe!

Honda, General Motors, BMW, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes-Benz and Stellantis, are joining forces to build a massive network of at least 30,000 high-powered charging stations across North America’s urban locations and on highways.

What This Means for You

  • More Charging Options: This network will almost double the number of available EV charging stations, making it easier and more convenient for you to charge your electric vehicle.
  • Fast & Easy Charging: Stations will be equipped for fast charging with both CCS1 and NACS connectors, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of EVs.
  • Convenience at Your Fingertips: Imagine planning your route, reserving a charger, and even paying for your “fuel” all from your car’s built-in charging network functions!

A Brighter Future for EVs

This exciting collaboration, combined with government initiatives like the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program, paves the way for a more robust and accessible charging infrastructure for EV drivers in Colorado and beyond.

EV Charger COThinking About Going Electric?

At Fisher Honda, we’re passionate about sustainable transportation. Whether you’re already an EV driver or considering making the switch, we can help you explore the many benefits of electric vehicles.

Electric vehicles (EVs) contribute to cleaner air and a healthier environment in a few key ways:

  • Zero Tailpipe Emissions: Unlike gasoline-powered vehicles, EVs don’t produce any harmful tailpipe emissions like nitrogen oxides or particulate matter. These pollutants contribute to smog, respiratory problems, and other health issues. By not producing these emissions, EVs directly improve air quality, especially in urban areas.
  • Reduced Reliance on Fossil Fuels: EVs run on electricity, which can be generated from renewable sources like solar or wind power. This reduces our dependence on fossil fuels like gasoline, which release greenhouse gases when burned. Lowering greenhouse gas emissions helps combat climate change and its associated environmental issues.
  • Quieter Operation: Electric vehicles are significantly quieter than gasoline-powered cars. This not only reduces noise pollution but also creates a more peaceful environment in our communities.

Here in Colorado, we’re known for our beautiful scenery. The new charging network helps preserve it! Powered by renewable energy sources, it ensures your electric car is truly environmentally friendly, keeping our air clean and mountains majestic.

Here are a few of the most frequently asked questions we’ve heard concerning Honda EVs or EVs in general:

Q: Which EVs Can Use Charging Stations?

A: Most charging stations are equipped with Level 3 (DC Fast Chargers) compatible with a wide range of EVs. However, non-plug-in hybrids like the Honda CR-V Hybrid rely on regenerative braking for charging and cannot use these stations.

Q: How Long Does Charging an Electric Vehicle Take?

A: The charging time depends on your battery size, remaining charge, and the type of charger used. DC Fast Chargers offer the fastest option, typically getting you to 80% capacity in about an hour for most EVs.

Q: How Much Does Charging an EV Cost?

A: The cost varies depending on electricity prices and the amount of energy needed to recharge your battery. Some stations charge per use, while others offer memberships. Regardless, with gas prices rising, charging an EV is generally cheaper than filling up with gas.
