GM to partner with EV charging networks for its electric cars

CHICAGO– U.S. automaker General Motors (GM) said on Wednesday that it will collaborate with three leading electric vehicle (EV) charging networks in the country to service its Chevrolet Bolt EV cars.

“GM believes in an all-electric future, and this is a significant step to make charging easier for our customers,” said Doug Parks, GM vice president of autonomous and electric vehicle programs.

The three leading EV charging networks, EVgo, ChargePoint and Greenlots, have more than 31,000 charging ports in the United States. GM said in a statement that it plans to gather data from all three networks to enable Chevrolet Bolt EV drivers to have a “more seamless charging experience.”

GM expects to finalize the terms of its collaboration and agreements with the three charging networks within the first quarter of 2019.

GM sold its 200,000th electric vehicle in 2018, hitting a quantity cap which triggered a phase-out of a 7,500-U.S. dollar-federal tax credit for its EV buyers. While trying to keep its momentum in electric car market, GM also has its eye on crowdsourcing charging services to create a stronger EV infrastructure.
