People with unanswered questions don’t buy cars. GM understands that as well as anyone — that’s why they’ve launched Plug and Charge.
General Motors continues its mission to make owning an EV easier in today’s driving environment. The company has expanded its existing collaboration with EVgo to build new high power fast chargers across the US Under this agreement, EVgo and GM will deploy 3,250 charging stalls through 2025 and expand its geographic reach to 52 metropolitan markets.
GM has created the Plug and Charge service as part of the Ultium Charge 360 ecosystem, designed to work with GM’s existing and future EVs like the GMC Hummer EV, the Cadillac LYRIQ, and the Chevy Bolt EVs and EUVs. Plug and Charge is now available at nearly all compatible DC fast-charging stations in the Ultium Charge 360 network.
The goal of Plug and Charge is to streamline the EV charging process for customers. Drivers who have an EVgo account, active OnStar connected services, or the GM brand app will have to activate Plug and Charge within the app. After that, they can easily plug in their car and charge up with no extra steps.
The Plug and Charge service builds upon GM’s commitment to invest nearly $750 million in charging infrastructure via the Ultium Charge 360 ecosystem, which bills itself as a holistic approach to charging that integrates charging networks, GM vehicle mobile apps, and other products and services to streamline the charging experience for individual EV owners, fleets, and car dealers.
With Ultium Charge 360, drivers of GM EVs will have access to more than 100,000 charge points in the US and Canada.
Stations that are part of the new charging program are currently live in eight states, including Colorado, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. The GM and EVgo partnership will expand that reach to future markets like Alabama, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Texas, and Wisconsin.
