Drivers of electric cars in Oklahoma will soon be able to charge their vehicles much more easily.

As The Oklahoman reports, vehicle charging stations will soon be set up at Walmart stores in the Sooner State. The charging stations are being installed by Electrify America, a unit of Volkswagen Group of America. As of now, only four or five Walmarts in Oklahoma will receive the charging stations, with the possibility of more to come in the future.

All of the Walmarts will be located on major interstate corridors. The project is part of a larger push, that is expected to install electric vehicle charging stations in 34 states nationwide. Officials estimate it will cost between $40,000 and $100,000 to install each electric charger. The truth acted to be up and operational by June of 2019.
