BMW of North America partnered with National Park Foundation, National Park Service, and Department of Energy since April 2017 to make national parks throughout the U.S. more accessible to plug-in vehicle drivers.
The German manufacturer donated over the period 100 charging stations, out of which over 90 have been installed and the remaining few will be opened this month - just in time for the summer season.

It's great to see that carmakers are supporting infrastructure rollout. Charging points (the base AC Level 2) usually can replenish enough electricity over several hours to limit the necessity of charging on the route.
