GM Adds 500 EV Charging Stations to Massive Network Expansion
General Motors announced Nov. 9 that it is expanding its EV fast-charging network across the U.S.
The automaker, in collaboration with EVgo, plans to add an additional 500 stations to a previous target of tripling EVgo’s charging infrastructure by building 2,750 charging stations through 2025. GM and EVgo are now planning on installing 3,250 charging stalls across 52 metropolitan markets.
The project has already completed the installation of EV fast-charging stations in Georgia, Florida, Pennsylvania, Colorado, and North Carolina. GM now plans to expand installations to Alabama, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Texas.
GM is committed to delivering 30 EV models to the market through 2025, which will be supported by public charging infrastructure such as this project with EVgo. The stalls will all be powered by 100% renewable electricity and deliver up to 350 kW, adding 150 miles of range in 8-12 minutes.
“DC fast charging is crucial to our goal of putting everyone in an EV and making electrification convenient,” Rick Spina, GM vice president of AV/EV Commercialization and Infrastructure, said in a statement. “Growing the geographic footprint of our collaboration with EVgo to even more metropolitan areas will be key to making fast charging accessible to more customers.”
