    Critical question also-how many Superchargers are working or outputting what they claim to do?

    UP of Michigan to receive its first fast DC charger but..

    They would need more grant money to fund additional changers. Current charger is not located where bathrooms or food service is. One has to walk 1-1.5 blocks to gas station for this. McDonalds is like 4 blocks away on US2. The location is not well lighted for night time use.

    Electrify America Fast Chargers - Huh?

    Middle America is aware that Tesla has stated a Supercharger would arrive soon in the UP of Michigan back in 2018 but...nothing has been done since the PR piece. The UP is a dead area for DCFC except for the newly arrived CCS DCFC one.

    EA charging rates start at 0.31 cents per kW in the 23 states that allow them to charge per kW. This includes the rate for the CCS chargers up to 350kW. A membership fee is required but with some car companies this fee does not exist. Plug and charge capabilities with no need for credit...

    Supercharger - Escanaba, MI

    A 150kW CCS DCFC fast charging station has existed in the UP for over 18 months at the Smithers Winter Test Center off of US-28. However, it is not open to the public but the major auto companies (with Ford a known heavy user) use it with winter testing of their newest EV offerings.

    VW emission funds for electric car charging via the State of Michigan. It will be a ChargePoint CCS charger. VW uses CCS ports and is the parent company of Electrify America which has a national wide charging network of CCS and CHAdeMO ports. Norway sought out the funding.

    Did a koolaid spill stop you from seeing this is NOT a Tesla supercharger site?---Since Tesla has not moved on installing any chargers in the UP a DCFC charger is better than NO Tesla charger in the UP. Been thru the area many times as I have a home in Wisconsin 80 miles from this location...

    UP of Michigan to receive its first fast DC charger but..

    It is got to be a 25kW charger based upon the grant figure. Better than nothing and L2 chargers. I am aware of another Michigan based EV car charger vendor that is actively scouting and wants to install their chargers elsewhere in the UP. Time will tell when and if this occurs.

    Mustang Mach E? What will I forgo?

    The CCS DCFC network is still a work in progress. It is not as good as a Supercharger network for coverage, reliability and not all DCFC CCS chargers are over 100kW. Then there is the cost issue. As of now, the CCS network cost more per "fillup" except for a few vehicles that have near...

    Mustang Mach E? What will I forgo?

    The 250kW verse 150kW charging numbers are just numbers. It is the charging curve that is telling. A post elsewhere with the "Fastner" label has the Mach e hanging onto just over 100kW charging rate (after the peak 150kW) to 70% where it drops quickly.

    North of Escanaba is Rapid River-around 15 miles-this is where US 2 and US 41 split with 41 heading north towards Marquette. Rapid River has been identified as a location for a Michigan placed DCFC which more than likely means CCS.

    Northern Minnesota in late December can be cold as in minus 30F. You can have day time highs of just over 0F. You can have lots of snow, drifting and blowing snow. You will suffer a 35% decrease in range in this environment. In that territory, you will not let your SOC drop to 5%...

    Mercedes EQS will have 435+ miles range

    I see 50kW and 100 kW chargers referred to at the Kona and Niro sites. I have not read of or heard of a 75kW charger. I have read of 120kW charger becoming a 62.5 kW charger when two vehicles are using the same charger but never a 150kW charger becoming a 75kW charger with two users.

    Mercedes EQS will have 435+ miles range

    Not to mention the 75kw "fast charging." Who mentioned 75kW charging as fast?
