GM signs on for EV fast charger network
General Motors is partnering with EVgo on the construction of a dedicated DC fast charging network for drivers of Maven, GM’s car sharing brand. The network will be available to Maven Gig Chevrolet Bolt EV drivers.
The agreement, announced by EVgo, builds upon the current pilot program of EVgo and Maven to power Bolt drivers in seven U.S. cities, including San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Boston, Washington DC, Baltimore, and Austin.
"EVgo is committed to working with fleet EV owners and operators to make charging quick and easy," said Cathy Zoi, EVgo CEO. "Maven Gig EV Bolt on-demand drivers will have access to a dedicated EVgo fast charging network so they can fully charge in the time it takes to eat lunch."
EVgo operates the largest public DC fast charging network in the country, with more than 1,000 fast chargers in 66 of the top-selling automotive metro areas in the US and supports all current charging standards.
