If you have a shop but don't have charging points, or only expensive ones, that's going to drive EV owning customers away. So there's an incentive to keep availability high and costs low.

Most people will be able to charge at home or at their destinations and may never need fast charging except for long road trips. Even so EV manufacturers do have an incentive to keep fast charging available and affordable; Tesla even built their own supercharger network.
