AAA is looking to address one of the biggest concerns raised about all-electric vehicles: that they can unexpectedly run out of juice, leaving their drivers stranded and in need of a tow. The organization will now include emergency EV charging services along with its popular emergency towing service in selected states beginning in August. EV drivers with AAA memberships in California, Florida, Georgia, Oregon, Tennessee and Washington will soon be able to call in a vehicle with a Level 2 or Level 3 charger that can recharge their batteries in hours or minutes, respectively.
