Subaru Partners for EV Charging
Subaru of America, Inc. will partner with EVgo Inc., a public fast charging network for and powered by 100% renewable electricity, as its preferred EV charging partner.
The automaker unveiled its first-ever zero emissions vehicle, the 2023 Solterra EV SUV in November, the automaker’s first all-electric SUV and its first battery-electric vehicle to be released globally. Sales will begin in mid-2022 for the vehicle, which has an estimated range of over 220 miles.
Subaru drivers can drive with zero emissions since EVgo’s network uses 100% renewable electricity and has over 800 public fast charging locations and 1,200 L2 charging stalls spanning 68 metropolitan areas and 35 states. In addition, drivers can access more than 46,000 L2 and DC fast charge public chargers through EVgo’s roaming partners across the U.S. EVgo continues to build out its fast charging network and is planning to have 16,000 charging stalls deployed by 2027.
“Subaru and EVgo share a commitment to performance, reliability, and being good stewards of the environment, which is why we’re excited to partner up to deliver convenient charging for Solterra drivers,” said David Sullivan, Product Marketing Launch Manager at Subaru in a statement. “We know that access to convenient and affordable charging is key to accelerating EV adoption, and the Subaru EVgo partnership will deliver just that for our first fully electric drivers.”
