With the growth of electric vehicle sales in the United States, the average utilization rate of charging facilities has increased significantly. In 2023, the number of fast charging stations operated by non-Tesla companies in the United States increased from 9% in January 2023 to 18% in December 2023.

As the sales of electric vehicles in the United States increase, the average utilization rate of charging facilities has increased significantly. In 2023, the number of fast charging stations operated by non-Tesla companies in the United States increased from 9% in January 2023 to 18% in December. In other words, by the end of 2023, each fast charging pile in the United States will have an average daily plug-in time of nearly 5 hours.
In some states, the utilization rate of charging piles is already much higher than the national average. In Connecticut, Illinois and Nevada, fast charging requires plugging in for 8 hours a day; the average utilization rate of charging piles in Illinois is 26%, ranking first in the United States.

Currently, the national average utilization rate is 15%.
Charging options will also expand this year as Tesla begins opening its Supercharging network to cars made by other automakers. Tesla accounts for just over a quarter of all fast-charging stations in the U.S., though its sites tend to be larger, so about two-thirds of the wires in the U.S. are dedicated to Tesla ports.
On February 29, Ford announced that starting from now, Ford electric vehicle customers can use more than 15,000 Tesla Supercharging piles in the United States and Canada.
It is reported that Ford F-150 Lightning and Mustang Mach-E retail customers have become the first non-Tesla automakers to use Tesla Supercharging stations in the United States and Canada.
