“EVgo, GM and Pilot Company share a commitment to building an electric fueling network that increases access and makes the shift to electrification as frictionless as possible for all. We look forward to this collaboration and ensuring the EVgo network provides nationwide coverage, including critical corridors for road trips.”
Details of the deal have the charging network set up with locations every 50 miles. The goal is to make it easier to travel cross-country without the fear of a dead battery affecting EV owners.
