Electric Vehicles

Ameren Missouri will build a network of electric charging stations along Interstates 70, 40 and 55 by the end of the year.

Ameren Missouri is among six Midwest utilities planning to build charging stations in several states, including Missouri, Illinois and Oklahoma. The multistate network is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.

As more people rely on electric vehicles, additional charging stations are needed on highways to keep them running, Ameren Missouri officials said.

Southeast Missouri State University students enrolled in manufacturing design produced an electric vehicle for their class. The Electric Vehicle Club is an on campus organization that focuses on the design and building of electric vehicles. The club helped build the dune buggy.

“The class did the actual hands on building, but the Electric Vehicle Club specified the motor and the drive and procured the batteries,” said Jim Dow, a Southeast student.
