BOSTON (AP) —Massachusetts has provided an additional $4 million to support more electric vehicle charging stations across the state.

The money comes from the state’s portion of the 2017 Volkswagen diesel emissions court settlement.

Of the $4 million, $1.5 million will fund fast-charging stations, $1.5 million will be spent on public-access charging stations, and $1 million will go to workplace and fleets charging station infrastructure, according to state officials.
