EVgo and Chevron bring EV fast charging to select California gas stations
Electric vehicle (EV) charging is now available in Menlo Park, one of five stations planned to host more than a dozen EVgo fast chargers and offer convenient charging to electric vehicle drivers.
EVgo, the largest public electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging network in the U.S.A., is working with Chevron to bring EV fast charging to select Chevron company-owned and operated gas stations in California.
More than a dozen EVgo fast chargers – ranging from 50 kW to 100 kW capacity – are already operational or under construction at five Chevron stations to offer convenient charging to EV drivers. These stations are located in the 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,” says Cathy Zoi, EVgo CEO. “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.”
“We are excited to be working with EVgo to install electric vehicle charging stations at select locations in California,” said Alice Flesher, 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.”
Additional stations are scheduled to open over the next few months.
