LOS ANGELES — EVgo, a public fast charging network for electric vehicles (EVs), is expanding its offering for Tesla drivers to charge at more EVgo stations across the country, upgrading hundreds of its stations with integrated Tesla connectors. EVgo’s chargers are located in the lots of retail partners, including Altoona, Pa.-based Sheetz.
EVgo will deploy more than 400 integrated Tesla connectors at existing EVgo stations, with an additional 200 connectors reserved for new stations planned for 2021 in key cities including San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Seattle, Denver, Dallas, Austin, Washington, D.C., Salt Lake City and Miami.
Los Angeles-based EVgo first launched the integrated Tesla connectors at its locations in San Francisco and Los Angeles in December 2019, positioning itself as the first multi-standard fast charging platform to offer Tesla connectors in the United States, and remains the only third-party fast charging network to be incorporated in the Tesla navigation system in the country.
"EVgo's expansion of integrated Tesla connectors underscores our commitment to delivering convenient and reliable fast charging to all EV drivers," said Cathy Zoi, CEO of EVgo. "EV drivers seek efficiency and convenience in how they charge their vehicles, including the ability to shop while they charge. Today's exciting announcement will make it even easier for Tesla drivers to top up while they grocery shop and run other errands, while driving greater utilization across our growing charging network."
EVgo's integrated Tesla connectors are capable of providing 100 miles of charge in 30 minutes.
Los Angeles-based EVgo is a public fast charging network for electric vehicles powered by 100% renewable energy. With more than 800 fast charging locations in more than 67 metropolitan areas across 34 states, EVgo serves more than 220,000 customers.
