Survey Says: Most EV Drivers Rely on Fast Chargers for Long Trips, Use Onsite Amenities While Charging  

QUEBEC CITY and AUBURN HILLS, Mich.—FLO, a leading North American electric vehicle (EV) charging company and a smart charging solutions provider, found that a majority of EV drivers rely on DC fast chargers for extended trips according to a recent customer survey. The results, gathered from almost 40,000 EV drivers in the U.S. and Canada, provided insight into EV drivers’ charging habits and the activities they regularly engage in while charging. 

Findings from the survey include: 

“FLO’s survey demonstrates the need for more robust charging solutions across North America, enabling drivers to plug in wherever they are—at work, home, or on the go.” said Louis Tremblay, President and CEO of FLO. “Hearing from almost 40,000 EV drivers is extremely informative and points towards the effectiveness of both at home and public charging networks in supporting the day-to-day lives of most EV drivers and providing the best charging experience one session at a time.” 

Conducted last year, the survey supports the buildout of FLO’s own-and-operate network of fast chargers.  

Businesses will host the chargers that FLO owns and operates. The sites will bring fast charging — a much-desired amenity — to their own customers without most of the expenses, risks or logistics of owning their own charger.  

The program will primarily deploy the new dual-port FLO Ultra charger. With up to 320 kW of available power, the FLO Ultra charger will charge most new EVs to 80% in 15 minutes.  The station is future capable of up to 500kW when paired with a second FLO Ultra charger. The FLO Ultra’s driver-centric design, reliable performance and ease of use make it the ideal charger for locations that include restaurants, restrooms and other amenities.
