EVgo, America’s public fast charging network for electric vehicles (EVs), announced the completion of a two month project to upgrade 21 of its popular fast-charging stations in key California markets by replacing single-plug standard chargers with dual-standard chargers that include both CHAdeMO and CCS Combo connectors.
The selected stations are located in high traffic areas around San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, expanding access to even more EVgo fast chargers to make quick charging more convenient for drivers. This project was completed ahead of schedule and helps serve more CCS-compatible EVs, like the BMW i3, and the Chevrolet Bolt.
According to The International Council on Clean Transportation, California leads the country in electric vehicle sales and in 2017 accounted for half of all EV purchases in the nation. Providing more fast-charging capabilities throughout the state is key to powering all of these cars on the road today and enabling more EV sales, which is why EVgo works to make owning an electric vehicle easy by providing affordable, accessible, and reliable fast charging.
“EVgo is making the electric vehicle charging experience as easy as possible for all drivers, and today’s news that we have added additional capacity at 21 California stations means that EVgo’s network can power even more EVs,” said Cathy Zoi, CEO of EVgo. “The old world is changing, and EVgo is rapidly expanding our network of over 1000 public fast chargers across the US so that more Americans can choose a better way to drive.”
