New data-crunching shows the concentration of public electric-vehicle chargers, dividing the union between EV-friendly states and those not so hospitable to purely electric models.

The iSeeCars data shows that U.S. charging infrastructure on the whole increased by a robust 24% year-over-year in 2023. That’s significant, given that consumers’ concern about getting stranded in an EV due to lack of charger availability is a top reason for passing EVs over for gas-powered cars.

Even with the growth, the online vehicle search engine and research website said there’s still a national average of just one EV charger for every 1,848 people, though that’s a 19% improvement over its last count.

It deemed the most EV-friendly city and state in the country to be San Francisco and Vermont, the least friendly Milwaukee and Mississippi. The most improved are Hartford, Conn. and Connecticut as a whole.

The company said there’s now a combined total of Level 2, or 240-volt, and Level 3, or 480-plus volts at more than 181,000.
