EVgo, a public electric vehicle (EV) fast-charging network, is bringing more EV fast-charging to select California gas stations owned and operated by Chevron.
More than a dozen EVgo chargers – ranging from 50 kW to 100 kW of capacity – are operational or under construction at five Chevron stations. These are located in Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay Area communities, including Aliso Viejo, Manhattan Beach, Menlo Park and Venice. Additional stations are scheduled to open over the next few months.
“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’s 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,” adds Alice Flesher, general manager of Chevron’s company-owned/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.”
Currently, EVgo fast-chargers at the Menlo Park Chevron station – located at 1399 Willow Rd. in Menlo Park – are open.
