Electrify America, Volkswagen’s electric vehicle (EV) charging unit, is planning to more than double its charging infrastructure in the United States and Canada over the next four years.

The company is targeting to set up over 1,800 fast charging stations and 10,000 individual chargers installed by the end of 2025.

Reuters reported last week that Volkswagen was looking to sell a stake in Electrify America to gain access to outside funds for building infrastructure for battery-powered cars.

Electrify America, which counts ChargePoint and Tesla’s Supercharger among its competition, has 635 charging stations with around 2,850 fast-loading spots up and running.
