This report presents a model developed to explore the relationship between charging infrastructure availability and electric car sales growth in California. The model focuses on analysing the rate of charging infrastructure growth and sales growth of different types of electric vehicles between 2016 and 2021. The data is analysed using a stochastic approach, and a logistic function is used to model the charging infrastructure growth rate. The model treats California as the environment and uses multiple charging stations as patches. The model's results are presented as plots on the interface, and the correlation between the sales and charging infrastructure growth rates are predicted over five years. This report provides insights into the interdependence between charging infrastructure availability and electric vehicle sales growth, which can be valuable for policymakers and stakeholders in the transportation sector.
