GM joins hands with Pilot and EVgo to build wide EV charger Network to support the vehicles on certain distances.
The multi-dimensional business giants including the renowned automaker, EV charging business and a leading truck stop chain have proposed building a network supporting charging stations at every 50-mile distance along U.S. highways.
EVgo, Pilot Travel Centers and General Motors declared on Thursday about building approximately 2,000 charging stations including 500 Pilot Flying J sites across the nation.
The companies in a statement said that they’re depending on government grant support and programs from utilities to organize the network.
The official spokesman of GM Philip Lienert said “Construction will start this summer with the first chargers operating sometime in 2023, and should be finished in a couple of years.”
GM said the EV charging network will be along the highways to enable smooth interstate travel.
On commissioning, the charger network will add up to the Biden administration initiative toward its goal of 500,000 stations nationwide around 2030 in its holistic mission to people to switch from gasoline-powered vehicles to support environment conservation.
