The Top 5: Largest EV Charging Station Companies In The World

Fossil-fuels-based cars are getting replaced by fast-emerging electric vehicles (EVs) with sales of the latter increasing tremendously over the past decade, especially the last two years. As per the latest data, 2021 was a record-setting year as EV sales doubled to around 6.9 million EVs worldwide. The rise of EVs also saw the emergence of sectors on which EVs depend, directly or indirectly.
