The company’s fast chargers claim to deliver convenient, fast charges to EV drivers on the go, delivering up to 90 miles of range in 30 minutes.

According to the company, its fast chargers are compatible with all EV models currently on the market that accept DC Fast Charging. With more than 1,100 fast chargers and more than 1,000 Level 2 chargers in 66 metropolitan markets,

EVgo’s network in 34 U.S. states allows EV drivers to travel further while providing service by maintaining and operating its charging stations. It also offers a variety of flexible pricing options for drivers including Pay As You Go and low-cost Membership options.

In California, EVgo has built more than 550 fast chargers and is building more than 130 new, conveniently located fast chargers across California to deliver reliable and affordable fast charging to EV drivers across the state.

By partnering with the City of Sacramento on this innovative project EVgo will provide the first curbside high-power EV fast charging service in the state. It will make it easy for residents and visitors alike to shift to electric vehicles and away from fossil fuels
