GE to Sell Chargers and EVs?
Things have come a long way since Henry Ford designed his first automobile. Coda Automotive, makers of the zero emissions all-electric Coda Sedan and General Electric, have teamed up to sell the Coda Sedan and the GE WattStation Wall Mount EV Charger in the same retail outlets.
Many are already feeling that a shift toward electric vehicles is the responsible decision, but a change that big means replacing and changing huge chunks of our lives. A brand new all-electric vehicle means you will remember to plug in every night instead of stoping by the gas station on your way to work. It also means you will need a charging station. Thanks to this deal between Coda and GE, you can pick up a charging station at the same time you buy your new all-electric Coda.
The GE WattStation Wall Mount is a Level 2 EV charger, meaning it offers between 208-240V, rather than the 110V provided by the Level 1 Chargers. Level 3 chargers, on the other hand, are used for commercial use at gas stations and provide a super quick charge. The higher the level, the faster the charge. It is not the most exciting bit of news we have heard, but it could help grow EV adoption which we are all for.
