EVgo Inc. and General Motors have announced the availability of Plug and Charge for all GM EVs with DC fast-charging capability on the EVgo network.
Plug and Charge enables EVgo GM customers to start a fast-charging session without the need to open a mobile app or swipe an RFID or credit card. GM’s Plug and Charge service utilizes the latest iteration of EVgo’s Autocharge technology, adding enhanced security features, the company says.
This technology will initially be available to all GM EVs with DC fast-charging capability at EVgo stations. After a one-time enrollment, customers will unlock fast charging on the EVgo network with the charger and car communicating to match the vehicle to the driver’s EVgo and GM brand app account, the company says.
To enroll, GM customers must register their vehicle in the GM brand app, link their EVgo account and activate Plug and Charge within their GM brand app.
