The partnership began in 2020 and was expanded in 2021. Its goal is to install 3,250 fast-charging stalls in major metro markets. Installations to date, says EVgo, cover 39 markets in 27 states and include 230 locations, the majority of which offer 350 kW fast charging.
“The availability of fast charging infrastructure is key to widespread EV adoption and consumer confidence in all-electric transportation,” said EVgo CEO Cathy Zoi.
EVgo is one of GM’s preferred operators within its Ultium Charge 360 initiative to expand charging access, improve reliability and enhance customer experience. In 2022, for example, the two companies helped launch the Plug and Charge feature that allows drivers to start a charging session by simply plugging in without additional payment authentication required.
