GM, Pilot Co. to Build EV Charging Network 

GM and Pilot Company (Pilot and Flying J) are collaborating on a national DC fast charging network.

This project of 2,000 charging stalls, co-branded "Pilot Flying J" and "Ultium Charge 360," will be powered by EVgo eXtend and open to all EV brands at up to 500 Pilot and Flying J travel centers.  This collaboration is targeting the installation of charging stalls at 50-mile intervals across the U.S. 

GM customers will receive discounts on charging, a streamlined charging process through Plug and Charge and integration into GM's vehicle brand apps providing real-time charger availability and help with route planning. 

The Pilot and Flying J travel centers plan to feature numerous fast charging stalls provided by EVgo, including high-power fast chargers capable of offering up to 350 kW1. 

"We are committed to an all-electric, zero-emissions future, and ensuring that the right charging infrastructure is in place is a key piece of the puzzle," said Mary Barra, GM CEO in a statement. "With travel centers across North America, Pilot Company is an ideal collaborator to reach a broad audience of EV drivers."
