Charging Ignorance/misconceptions and work infrastructure

"8. Slow versus Fast Charging Debate Intensifies
More drivers will use Level 1 chargers to charge overnight, and perhaps during the day at the workplace."

With up to 80% of Americans driving less than 40 miles a day, night charging of 8-10 hours satisfies this.
Minus the city/apt dwellers, The biggest obstacle remaining is in the minds of potential adopters (and in some cases their "landlords")

Others, like me, who need to do over 40 and up to 100 miles a day, may need at least 2 to 9 hours of workplace charging to satisfy all EV commutes.

So the biggest proponent work needed for this item has nothing to do with technology as that has already arrived. It is most importantly a mass education campaign on EVs in general, and a secondary education campaign on workplace L1 charging acceptance and infrastructure build out (a minor expense in the big picture).

The e-bike is overdue. I spent some time In Ningbo China south of Shanghai. It's a big city and the predominate transportation form is e-bikes of every type and color. It works.
