General Motors will collaborate with EVgo, ChargePoint and Greenlots—three of the US’ leading electric vehicle (EV) charging networks—to enable access to the largest collective electric vehicle charging network in the United States, including more than 31,000 charging ports.

GM plans to aggregate dynamic data from each of the EV charging networks so owners of the all-electric Chevrolet Bolt EV can have a more seamless charging experience with their GM vehicles.
GM believes in an all-electric future, and this is a significant step to make charging easier for our customers.  By collaborating with these three companies, we expect to reduce barriers to create a stronger EV infrastructure for the future.  This is an important step toward achieving GM’s vision of a world with zero emissions.

—Doug Parks, General Motors vice president of Autonomous and Electric Vehicle Programs
Dynamic charging information received from EVgo, ChargePoint and Greenlots will enhance future versions of the myChevrolet app. New information to be provided by the charging networks will include real-time data on charge station health to report if a charging station is working, available and compatible with a Bolt EV, offering a one-stop shop for all range and charging data before or during a trip.

GM also expects to make enrollment for charging with these networks easier by creating an app interface for all three networks to streamline charger access and potentially allow activation of a charging session using the app instead of a membership card.
