GM & EVGo’s expansion deal also helps Mustang Mach-E

Another 2,700 rapid chargers for Mustang Mach-E owners

In a partnership announced today, General Motors and EVGo, plan to add more than 2,700 new fast chargers over the next five years, which will help accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles.

The partnership, not unlike Ford’s own with Electrify America, will add fast charging stations in cities and suburbs at places customers regularly frequent like grocery stores, retail outlets, entertainment and other high-traffic locations.

“We know how important the charging ecosystem is for drivers, one that includes access to convenient and reliable public fast charging.”

Mary Barra, GM Chairman and CEO

The new stations will be located in highly visible areas and most will charge up to four vehicles at a time. The stations will feature new charging technology with 100-350-kilowatt capabilities meet the rapid charging needs of modern EVs.

EVgo will continue to launch new charging locations outside of the GM collaboration. The company says that it currently has more than 800 fast-charging locations in 34 states.

Mustang Mach-E’s J1772 DC Combo charging port

The best part of this expansion is that the stations will use the CCS Combo 1 (J1772 DC Combo) standard also used by Mustang Mach-E, meaning electric Mustang owners will be able to take full advantage of all these new chargers.

GM and EVgo say the new stations will be available to customers starting in early 2021, just as the Mustang Mach-E reaches customers.
