Looking to stoke demand for electric cars, BMW (OTCPK:BAMXF), VW (OTCPK:VLKAF), Ford (NYSE:F) and Daimler (OTCPK:DDAIF) are aiming to build a network of ultra-fast charging stations across Europe.
The 400 next-generation 350 kilowatt chargers would be nearly three times as powerful as Tesla's (NASDAQ:TSLA), reloading an electric car in minutes instead of hours.
