EV Connect to Help Simplify Charging for GM’s EV Drivers

EV Connect 2

Broadening its partnership with General Motors (NYSE: GM), EV Connect revealed today that Plug and Charge functionality is now

Broadening its partnership with General Motors (NYSE: GM), EV Connect revealed today that Plug and Charge functionality is now accessible on the EV Connect network via GM vehicle brand applications. This enhancement allows GM drivers to effortlessly connect and charge their vehicles on EV Connect’s network without the need to swipe a payment card or scan an RFID tag at nearly 200 compatible DC fast chargers across the nation. Additional charging stations equipped with Plug and Charge capabilities are anticipated to be incorporated regularly for GM drivers throughout the year 2024.

By helping to simplify EV public charging, drivers access hassle-free fast charging and spend less time initiating charging sessions and avoid scanning, swiping, or inputting billing information. Plug and Chargetechnology allows drivers who opt-in through a one-time enrollment within a GM vehicle brand app to start charging by plugging in their vehicle at a participating station. Plug and Charge-enabled stations are identifiable through a filter in GM vehicle brand apps, allowing drivers to locate and use charging stations quickly.

“This collaboration helps to relieve GM EV drivers from one of the most common friction points of the charging process, enhancing the EV ownership experience, and holds the potential to drive EV adoption further,” said Jon Leicester, Vice President, Head of Commercial, at EV Connect. “EV Connect and GM share a mission to simplify the EV ownership experience, and this agreement is another important step in that direction. I am delighted to continue our work with GM toward making EV charging hassle-free and convenient.”

EV Connect is a preferred GM charge station operator, offering innovative EV charging management solutions, including advanced data analytics and 24/7 customer support, to charging stations at GM dealerships across North America. EV Connect is also part of GM’s holistic public charging ecosystem, which includes GM EV drivers having access to approximately 3,500 EV Connect public chargers and the ability to conveniently start a charging session and make contact-free payments after fueling.
