The following are charger sites for the Chrysler EV EPIC (Electric Powered Interurban Commuter) Minivans.  The  charger for this vehicle is somewhat unique and not available through the growing public infrastructure.  These sites are primarily private sites, which if contacted, may allow use of their charger(s).  The sites primarily utilize the large Lockheed-Martin charger or the "blue box".  Some locations also have a Level 3 fast charger (such as AeroVironment) which typically charge at the rate of 2 miles/minute and usually provide up to a 75-80% charge in 30 minutes.
