The Inside EVs report is based on some EA stations having problems, but you failed to mention that the article states they will be fixed within a short time. Regardless of EA or other networks, they all can have issues so it is not fair to single out any one of them. As far as VW claims regarding surpassing Tesla, I've never heard that but if they stated that, they should have known that is a big pill to swallow and almost impossible to achieve. Bottom line, VW is just as incented as Tesla to do the right thing now and being forced to provide DCFC infrastructure is fine by me. The more charging infrastructure the better so bring it on. We can't change the world and impact Climate Change positively just by promoting one single EV Vendor like Tesla. We need all car manufacturers to get with the program so I always put the hammer down to people that just promote Tesla and say how good they are and they are the best. If Elon can build 50 million cars a year, then I'll be at the front of the Tesla bandwagon yelling the loudest. But since he can't, we need VW's 1 million a year, GM, Ford, all of them to start cranking out EVs as soon as they can to make the difference we need in a short time. 93 million cars and light trucks sold last year globally, just over 2 million were EVs. We have a long long way to go.
