General Motors and its dealers will expand access to charging in local communities including in underserved, rural and urban areas where EV charging access is often limited.
This initiative, which begins in 2022, is part of GM’s recently announced commitment to invest nearly USD$750 million to expand home, workplace and public charging infrastructure through its Ultium Charge 360 ecosystem.
Through the Dealer Community Charging Program, GM will work with its dealers to deploy Level 2 charging stations (EVSE) at key locations in the dealer’s respective communities, including workplaces, multi-unit dwellings, sports and entertainment venues and college and universities, among others. These charging stations will be available to all EV customers, not just those who purchase a GM EV. Today, nearly 90 percent of the U.S. population lives within 10 miles of a GM dealership.
GM is also announcing that its new line of three Ultium-branded Level 2 smart charging stations will be offered to customers through dealerships and online to provide more home or commercial charging options and help make EV charging more widespread.
