GM Partners With Three Companies To Create Largest EV Charging Network In US

General Motors has ambitious plans to launch at least 20 electric vehicles by 2023 and the company is supporting that effort by announcing a new electric vehicle charging partnership.

According to the automaker, it will work with ChargePoint, EVgo and Greenlots to provide customers with access to more than 31,000 charging ports in America. The company says this effectively makes it the “largest collective electric vehicle charging network in the United States.”

As part of the collaboration, GM will receive data from the charging companies and this information will be used to enhance the myChevrolet app. This will enable users to get real-time information about charging station availability, condition and compatibility with the Chevrolet Bolt.

Besides providing users with an easy way to find the nearest available charger, GM revealed plans to streamline the charging process. If everything goes according to plan, drivers could use a single app to gain access to ChargePoint, EVgo and Greenlots chargers instead of having to sign up for all three separately. The company also hinted the app could be used to begin the charging process, instead of swiping a membership card.

The final details are still being hammered out, but GM expects the partnerships will be in place by the end of the first quarter. When this occurs, drivers can expect a more seamless charging experience.

In a statement, GM’s vice president of autonomous and electric vehicle programs said “GM believes in an all-electric future, and this is a significant step to make charging easier for our customers.” Doug Parks went to say “By collaborating with these three companies, we expect to reduce barriers to create a stronger EV infrastructure for the future.”

    If GM wants to dive head long into the electric arena it is a good move to help with infrastructure.

    Improving the charging infrastructure will make all the difference. The current public chargers suck massively.

    So all EVs have to have the same charging connectors I assume? Otherwise you’d have to find your own manufacturers charge point which would be rediculous. You pay for your charge with a credit card or app then?
