General Motors will partner with EVgo, ChargePoint and Greenlots, three of the US’s largest charging networks, to give its customers access to over 31,000 charging ports. GM plans to aggregate dynamic data from each of the networks to offer owners of the Chevrolet Bolt EV a more seamless charging experience.
GM expects to finalize the terms of its collaboration with the three networks during the first quarter of 2019.
The myChevrolet app will soon incorporate dynamic information received from the three networks, including real-time data on charging station uptime, availability and compatibility with the Bolt. GM also expects to make enrollment for the networks easier by creating an app interface to streamline charger access, and potentially to allow activation of a charging session using the app instead of a membership card.
“GM believes in an all-electric future, and this is a significant step to make charging easier for our customers,” said Doug Parks, GM’s VP of Autonomous and Electric Vehicle Programs. “By collaborating with these three companies, we expect to reduce barriers to create a stronger EV infrastructure for the future.”
