This week, the Biden administration unveiled big news for United States EV infrastructure, including a $5 billion plan, the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program, to help states build half a million charging stations by 2030. According to research from Alix Partners, roughly 24 percent of all vehicles sold by 2030 will be fully electric. The purpose of the $5 billion in funding is to create an alternative fuel corridor that stretches across the country. To support this effort, President Biden has announced the creation of the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation. Part of the plan is to promote the domestic production of EV chargers. To that end, Australian manufacturer Tritium has announced plans to build a production facility in Tennessee and crank out 30,000 chargers per year.
In other news, Sony has announced the release of its latest digital audio players, the Signature Series Walkman NW-WM1ZM2 and the NW-WM1AM2.
