Why Electric Cars Aren't Taking Over Yet

EON SE is teaming up with Danish charging provider Clever to build a network of fast-charging stations along European highways as the region struggles to spur widespread demand for electric cars.

The network, supported by 10 million euros ($12 million) in funding from the European Union, will initially have 180 stations stretching from Italy to Norway, Clever said Friday in a statement. The first stations in Germany and Denmark will open before the summer, with others following to create charging points at least every 180 kilometers (112 miles) and enable cross-continental road trips.
