EVgo Inc., the nation’s largest public fast charging network for electric vehicles (EVs) and first powered by 100% renewable electricity, today announced its nationwide customer accounts have crossed the 300,000 mark. The milestone arrives as EVgo continues to expand its fast-charging network footprint with convenient and reliable fast charging stations where drivers shop, work, and play.
“With EV sales increasing rapidly across the US, drivers are looking for charging locations that fit neatly into their lifestyles. EVgo is that brand – and the 300,000 customer account milestone demonstrates it,” said Cathy Zoi, CEO of EVgo. “EVgo’s continued commitment to great locations, best-in-class fast chargers, and a 24/7 support center to lend a hand or provide advice when it’s needed continue to offer EV drivers of all types an exemplary customer experience.”
In recent months, EVgo has expanded its suite of network innovations to enhance the EV driving experience with new high power chargers, kWh pricing, and other benefits for its customers, including the EVgo Plus™ subscription plan, the EVgo Rewards™ program and EVgo Reservations™. In July 2021, EVgo acquired Recargo, a leading e-mobility software company and one of the industry’s most utilized sources of driver-contributed EV industry data to further illuminate how the charging experience can help accelerate EV adoption across the US.
To celebrate its growing network of customers, EVgo has launched the #EVgo300K social media campaign. Throughout September 2021, customers that post pictures charging their vehicle at an EVgo station onto Twitter and Instagram using the #EVgo300K hashtag will earn 300 rewards points towards their EVgo Rewards account.
EVgo is supporting the transition towards an all-electric future by enabling greater customer flexibility and convenience when charging on the go. The company maintains reliable service with 98% uptime and ideal locations in retail areas that allow customers to shop and charge simultaneously. Today, EVgo has more than 800 fast charging locations across the U.S. with power levels ranging from 50 kW through 350 kW, and more than 2,000 new chargers in active Engineering & Construction pipeline stages.
