    Segment Transcript

    Kia America Director of Corporate Communications James Bell says EV range anxiety is a thing of the past and soon it’ll be even easier to find a charging station. Bell: "Yeah we think range anxiety is really washing away especially because most EV buyers today they are able to charge at home, so they're leaving their house with a proverbial full tank of gas every day and then we're starting to see more and more charging stations be built around the country. One of the criticisms has been well there's a gas corner so that makes it easy for me. Well, it hasn't always been that way and it's the same thing with electric charging stations. We're in the transitional time now. In fact there is a gas station near my house here, and the kind of one tip of the triangle, the guy who owns the place had some flowers and trees. Well, he is now putting charging station in that area and they can fill up the gasoline car over there and charge their electric car over here. So I think we're going to see more and more of that happen over the next year or two." For more information on these and other vehicles, check out CarPro.com.
