EVgo, the largest public electric vehicle (EV) fast charging network, announced it is working with Chevron to bring EV fast charging for selecting Chevron company-owned and operated gas stations in California.
There are more than a dozen EVgo fast chargers ranging from 50 kW to 100 kW capacity that are already operational or under construction at five Chevron stations to offer convenient charging to EV drivers.
These stations are located in Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay Area communities in California, including Aliso Viejo, Manhattan Beach, Menlo Park, and Venice.
“We believe the future of transportation is electric, and EVgo is helping everyone—including traditional fueling stations—take advantage of the benefits of EV adoption,” said EVgo CEO Cathy Zoi. “EVgo is excited to work with Chevron to bring fast-charging to gas stations today and applauds the company’s forward-thinking efforts to serve the rapidly growing market of electric vehicle drivers in California.”
EVgo fast chargers at the Menlo Park Chevron station (1399 Willow Rd, Menlo Park, CA 94025) are open and operational. And additional stations are scheduled to open over the next few months.
“We are excited to be working with EVgo to install electric vehicle charging stations at select locations in California,” added Alice Flesher — the general manager of Chevron’s company-owned and operated network of motor fuel stations. “While gasoline and diesel remain an important part of California’s transportation energy mix, we are always exploring how to evolve our offering, helping improve the consumer experience and working to remain the preferred brand choice on the West Coast.”
EVgo’s faster chargers provide convenient and fast charges to EV drivers on the go and are able to deliver up to 90 miles of range in 30 minutes. Plus EVgo’s fast chargers are compatible with all EV models currently on the market that accept DC Fast Charging. And EVgo has a network of 1,100 faster chargers and more than 1,000 Level 2 chargers in 66 metropolitan markets across 34 US states.
