I am actually a bit torn on this. I agree that more EVs of any brand is good for all the brands. On the other hand, it is already pretty hard to find a public charging point and with more EVs on the road, it is going to get even worse.

Maybe then Chargepoint will partner with In-N-Out and AMCs to offer more public charging stations (ala Walgreens)...

More likely scenario: No more free charging. Once you have to pay for it, EV owners will be a lot more selective about plugging in. Of course, if people still plug in and pay, then every business would start putting charging points in their parking lots.

Yes, but we knew it wouldn't last forever :-/ Sit-down restaurants, movie theaters and malls/big box stores make the most sense since those are the places people tend to spend substantial amounts of time. Frankly, Walgreens never made sense - who spends more than 10-15 min at a convenience store???

Maybe they want to encourage you to spend more time in the store. A DC fast charger would probably make more sense for Walgreens and similar stores but most cars, including the Karma would not be able to take advantage of that feature. In the meantime, I like the super convenient parking you get with the charge point.
