Electric drive technologies have improved dramatically in recent years. The number of charging stations in the country has multiplied from fewer than 6,000 to more than 20,000. And the cost of batteries, the biggest factor influencing the cost of plug-in vehicles, is moving in the right direction.

Still, as encouraging as these trends are, we should be working to fast-track additional progress. If we’re serious about building the bridge to broader electrification in transportation, a coalition of key players, from automakers to policymakers, utilities and others, must be willing to step up and commit to actions that will further advance the technologies and develop the marketplace.
