June 26, 2022 – General Motors will join a growing list of automakers focused on streamlining the EV charging process by equipping its models with ‘Plug and Charge’ capability.
Plug and Charge simplifies the process by allowing drivers to pay at a charging station using their account for a different charging network. Though it’s an important step, GM’s reach remains limited to the EVgo network.
“We want to be the company that makes the EV experience seamless and convenient for everyone, as well as take the mystery and fear factor out of EV ownership,” Hoss Hassani, GM vice president of EV Ecosystem, said in a statement. “Plug and Charge complements the work already in place with Ultium Charge 360 and will be part of a much larger effort this year to expand charging infrastructure, access and education.”
