Cornerstone Auto Joins Drive Electric Minnesota

2022 Kia EV6 in the Mountains

No doubt you’ve noticed more and more electric vehicles like the Ford Mustang Mach-E or Chevy Bolt EV around Monticello, MN. Nearly every major car brand has committed to significantly expanding its electric vehicle lineup over the coming years. The automotive future is undoubtedly electric. But we will need the charging infrastructure to support that electric future. That’s where Drive Electric Minnesota comes in. Let’s talk about that organization and why we are proud to partner with it.

Advocating for an Electric Infrastructure

At some point, electric charging stations will need to be as prolific and as conveniently located as gas stations are today. That’s why one of the goals of Drive Electric Minnesota is to create a state-wide fast-charging corridor and to build on existing corridors, like the one along I-95 from I-35 to Duluth. The organization also endeavors to have an active voice in policy and regulatory proceedings regarding EVs and supporting infrastructure. Cornerstone Auto and other partners and members of Drive Electric Minnesota seek to help make Minnesota a leader in electric vehicle infrastructure.

Educating Drivers and Policy Makers

One of the hesitations some Anoka, MN drivers have about switching to electric comes from anxiety about an electric vehicle’s range. Many who have this EV anxiety aren’t aware that the range of the typical electric vehicle is hundreds of miles and is often comparable to the range of the average gas tank. In the case of certain models, like the Ford F-150 Lightning, it’s even greater. That example of increasing range awareness demonstrates why it’s important to educate both drivers and the policymakers who create legislation around electric vehicles. This is another vital role that Drive Electric Minnesota plays, and one that we’re proud to be a part of.
