Japan Now Has More EV Chargers Than Gas Stations

Without going too far down the rabbit hole that is fuel station economics, let’s turn our attention to Japan where Bloomberg recently reported that it now has more electric vehicle (EV) charging stations than it has gasoline stations. The country currently has around 34,000 fuel stations, but also 40,000 EV chargers. That is quite remarkable, especially if you consider that EV charging stations only started to be built as late as 2010.
