Should governments and companies follow Zong's lead? Perhaps not exactly. His route has some drawbacks. While the stations are able to charge non-Tesla electric cars, they are spaced too far apart for any other commercial model's range. The stations also use older technology that requires about eight hours to fully juice a car, compared to the one-hour charging that the latest technology offers. American Norman Hajjar advocates for the installation of more expensive, but faster-working, stations.
