J.D. Power’s 2022 EV survey shows which charging network RULES

With so many people recently ordering electric cars from other brands the notice of which is a good thing. I thought it was worth pointing out the charging networks and what you’re going to expect. Now recently Tesla’s supercharging network got first place in J. D. power’s newest satisfaction study. But if you read the study at face value, I think you’ll be misled by JD power. How they bought and paid for maybe!! Anyway, he is detailed and he’s what you should expect with you on your electric coop. So, many of you who own Tesla already will know. One of the greatest things about owning a Tesla vehicle is the supercharger network hands down. It is the best, it’s not even an argument, it’s not a discussion, it’s not a question, it’s not a debate because that work is the best. Now I don’t even own a tesla to plan on in the future. Yes, I do. When they come with the MP3 battery, I will most certainly buy one. I do however own the BYD released I’m about to take delivery of one within the next few weeks. well, they want to byd able to use tesla a supercharged network well. In theory yes, in the future. At the moment here in Australia not quite yet. However, JD power’s recent survey. The 2022 U.S. Electric Vehicle Experience Study showed Tesla’s Superchargers were the most favorable to EV owners as the Supercharger Network earned 739 of a possible 1,000 points. The Segment Average score was 674, but the EV charging network with the closest cumulative score was ChargePoint with 644 points. So, it is essence JD powers thing charge point did pretty good nearly as good as Tesla 644 well basically 6.44 v/s 7.4. So, the big difference, is it? Well, Electrify America and EVgo had 614 and 573 points, respectively. Meaning if you were to look at the survey you would probably right the assume is not a whole difference between the tesla supercharger network and the charge point. Not a whole lot of difference between charge points for the EVgo, not a whole difference EVgo and electrify America. But is that really true? Well, first of all, the study measures EV owner satisfaction with two types of public charge point operators: Level 2 Charging and DC Fast Chargers. Satisfaction is ranked in ten subcategories, which include:

  • Ease of Charging
  • Speed of Charging
  • Cost of Charging
  • Ease of Payment
  • Ease of Finding a Location
  • The convenience of the Location
  • Things to do while Charging
  • How safe do you feel at the Location
  • Availability of Chargers and
  • Physical Condition of the Charging Location

Charging applications have become more available than in previous years due to the overall adoption of EVs. However, they are still very much a work in progress. Quite often you get to the charging station and the charges won’t be working. That’s very common. At networks excluding tesla to be fair, it’s very common. At networks including tesla that’s true. Charging satisfaction actually decreased from last year’s study, with a 633 score this year compared to 643 in 2021. “Public charging continues to provide challenges to overall EV adoption and current EV owners alike,” Executive Director of Global Automotive at J.D. Power, Brent Gruber, said. “Not only is the availability of public charging still an obstacle, but EV owners continue to be faced with charging station equipment that is inoperable.” In other words, a lot of charges aren’t working now and well you have actually a few months later. And this still not working a lot of people are very frustrated by that situation. I understand that. Now if you want to use a DC fast charger is a supercharged network is clearly the best for that purpose. However, Tesla also had its destination level two charging stations ranked as the best in terms of customer satisfaction. Destination Chargers gained 680 total points, with Volta ranking second with 667 points and ChargePoint in third with 639 points. Basically, J.D. Power saying destination chargers that really know the difference interns of customer satisfaction between tesla. Volta and ChargePoint it’s cool very similar. Is that true in the real world? Well, I spend 100 of hours on blogs. A lot of people’s 100 hours are a waste of time. But I learned a lot of things. One of these I learned is the vast difference in the customer’s satisfaction between tesla superchargers, Volta, and ChargePoint superchargers that include dc first chargers and destination level 2 superchargers. So, this JD power survey you should take with a grain of salt. It’s bogus and doesn’t reflect the real-world experience of real-world customers. Somebody has skewed the results I’m favorably in my view towards what I’ve been reading for many years now and especially within the last 6 to 12 months based on the real-world experiences of electric vehicle owners. Now the good news is Tesla plans on and already has made open the tesla supercharger networks to many different people in many countries worldwide. Eventually, everyone all around the world will have access to Tesla’s supercharger network. So, I’m not saying this to be biased I’m saying this to give you a real-world accurate description of what is actually going on. Teslarati says that in general, the EV charging infrastructure, in its current condition, has given EV owners relative satisfaction. The biggest issues with current EV charging happen to be related to the cost of charging, which ranked 473 for fast chargers and 446 for Level 2 chargers. And maybe the most interesting piece of information from this study from JD power was that DC fast charging users are usually planners. Who are most commonly on a road trip which along with convenience determines their choice of charging location? This is why some vehicles are lagging behind because despite having fast charges nearby Norrell vehicles are capable of charging at super-fast speeds. The mean many EVs you can buy now still charge at very very slow speeds one of the big drawbacks. This can be combated without buying a new vehicle as charging stations can give vehicle owners more short-term entertainment options to pass the time. So, if your vehicle charges really slowly make sure you bring your laptop your iPad, or something else. So, you want to review what you wait for your vehicle to charge that is if you bought an EV that charges slowly deafeningly. For example, the BYD that I ordered only charges a maximum speed of 80 kilowatts was a tesla can charge the Max’s paid around 250 kilowatts is a pretty big difference between those two cars right? “Everyone knows that the landscape of gas stations is focused on convenience—readily available, fast fueling, and quick convenience items,” Gruber added when discussing this point. “Although fast charging is seemingly getting faster by the day, to expedite the charging process, vehicles will need to accommodate the newest ultra-fast chargers. Currently, only a handful of vehicles can take advantage of the fastest charging speeds. Including vehicles like the Hyundai ioniq 5 KEB and the Porsche Taycan. Tesla all of their models pretty much can take advantage of fast charging speeds now as well. We went on to say no matter how fast the vehicle charges. EV under still indicate they need more options for things to do during each charging session to enhance convenience and fuel the downtime. Is it a really good opportunity for charging companies to install things entertainment to charge people with is it a time when they can use that downtime and pay for the opportunity? I think it’s a really big opportunity that is being missed right now anyhow. The point here is which charging network is the best will be very clear from all the surveys that I’ve seen from all forms of red. Tesla supercharging network is by far the best so once that network is available in your country. My recommendation is to start using it. Signed up for whatever tesla deal they have. The current you seem incredible for non tesla own it. It’s a really really good price, it’s better than the alternative. So, once become valuable that’s my recommendation go for that network.
