GM hopes to remain relevant in the new car-sharing gig economy – its Maven Gig service allows drivers for ride sharing and delivery services to lease GM vehicles, including Chevy Bolt EVs.
Now Maven has announced an agreement with fast charging network operator EVgo to construct a dedicated DC fast charging network for Maven Gig Bolt drivers. The two companies are currently operating pilot programs in San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Boston, Washington DC, Baltimore and Austin. EVgo’s new dedicated network for Maven will expand to “hundreds of charging stations in Maven markets across the country.”
“EVgo is committed to working with fleet EV owners and operators to make charging quick and easy,” said Cathy Zoi, EVgo CEO. “Maven Gig Bolt drivers will have access to a dedicated EVgo fast charging network so they can fully charge in the time it takes to eat lunch.”
