California aims to have to have 1.5 million zero-emission vehicles on California’s roads by 2025.

Coca-Cola will provide electric vehicle (EV) charging at seven of its facilities across California. eVgo will install and manage the charging stations to provide workplace charging for Coca-Cola employees with EVs.

The demand for EVs is rising in California. The number of EVs on California roads has surpassed 100,000.  With this the state now contributes about 40 percent of the sales of U.S electric vehicles.
