EVgo announced that it has extended its leadership as the nation’s largest public fast charging network serving electric vehicle (EV) drivers by increasing its California network by 40% from year-end 2018. Currently, more than 80% of Californians live within a 15-minute drive of one of 300 EVgo fast charging stations across the state.

“EVgo is enabling electric for all by building our fast charging stations in the places where EV drivers live, work and shop,” said Cathy Zoi, EVgo’s CEO. “EVgo’s California network will grow by 40% this year, and today, 80% of California EV drivers live within a 15-minute drive of one of 300 EVgo reliable and convenient fast charging stations.”

To date in 2019, EVgo has opened more than 100 new fast chargers throughout California and expects to open more than 200 new fast chargers in the state by year-end 2019.

EVgo operates today in 34 states. Nationally, more than 100 million Americans live within a 15-minute drive of one of EVgo’s more than 750 fast charging stations. Building upon its ten-year operating history, EVgo has focused its network growth in dense urban environments, particularly residents of multi-unit dwellings who typically rely on public stations to meet their EV fast charging needs.

With the growth of the electric vehicle market and its fast charging network, EVgo now has more than 180,000 customers across the United States.
