EVgo and General Motors surpassed 1,000 fast-charging stalls as part of a collaboration to expand fast-charging infrastructure. First announced in 2020 and expanded upon in 2021, the collaboration is meant to foster the development and installation of 3,250 DC fast-charging stalls in major metro markets.
EVgo and GM have opened fast charging stalls across nearly 230 locations in 39 markets covering 27 states, with the majority featuring high-power 350kW fast charging. The companies also plan to broaden access to public charging at grocery stores, retail centers and city centers, while also serving the need for customers who are unable to charge at home or work.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the 1,000th stall was held in Woodridge, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, at the recently completed charging station at the Woodgrove Festival Shopping Mall.
