In May of 2022, Oregon surpassed the total number of EVs that had been registered at 50,000, and by September of the same year, that number had climbed to over 57,700. According to the ODOT, the number of electric vehicles sold each month increased consistently all throughout the year.
In 2022, Oregon made significant enhancements to its electric vehicle charging infrastructure in order to accommodate the growing number of electric vehicles (EVs). In May, contractors successfully completed the first phase of modifications to Oregon’s portion of the West Coast Electric Highway that was sponsored by the ODOT. When the year 2023 rolls around, the enhancements to the fast charger network will be finished. As a result of the changes, quicker charging choices and three new stations will be available.
According to the most recent statistics from the United States Department of Energy, the number of public DC fast chargers in the state of Oregon will exceed 480 after those additional stations are installed. According to information provided by ODOT in a press release, there are about 1,700 public Level 2 charging stations around the state.
