What would an EV highway in the US look like?

STORY: U.S. President Joe Biden wants half of new vehicle sales to be electric by 2030

Electric vehicle chargers are a key part of that plan

His goal is to grow a network of 500,000 chargers on some of the country's busiest highways

including the I-95 from Maine to Florida, the I-5 from Washington to California

and the I-90 that stretches from Boston to Seattle

All EV models will be able to hook into the federally-funded chargers, even Tesla's SuperChargers

Where the chargers are located, what powers them and who builds them could shift the fate of companies and cities

There's no guarantee the chargers will go into existing service stations

Surveys show consumers want amenities - like manicures, showers and food - while they wait for their charge

So, states are giving preference to applicants who can offer a broader menu of options

meaning this could mark the end of the five-minute fuel stop

The first $1.5 billion of the $7.5 billion to pay for the network will head to states this year

Companies like ChargePoint Holdings, EVgo and Tesla are expected to battle it out for the cash
