Electric vehicles (EVs) provide a cleaner alternative that not only reduces greenhouse gas emissions but also improves air quality and reduces noise pollution. The consumer market for electrical vehicles is growing very rapidly. Designing a network with adequate capacity and types of public charging stations is a challenge that needs to be addressed to support the current trend in the EV market. In this research, we propose a choice modeling approach embedded in a two-stage stochastic…
