EVgo Inc. and CBL Properties have announced a partnership to add EVgo fast charging to select retail locations, including the first EVgo station in Kansas. The partnership supports EVgo’s plans to expand its public network in response to increased demand for EV charging in new markets and the growing segment of EV drivers who rely on public charging. Visitors to the EVgo stations at CBL Properties can charge up to 80% in 15-45 minutes, the company says.
CBL Properties’ portfolio of nearly 100 properties across 24 states, is comprised of malls, outlets, lifestyle retail centers and open-air centers. The new charging station at Overland Park adds to the portfolio of operational EVgo sites at CBL Properties, including the Greenbrier Mall in Chesapeake, Virginia, the Volusia Mall in Daytona Beach, Florida, and an additional site in development at Laurel Park Place in Livonia, Michigan, slated to come online in early 2022.
