An additional 3,500 new EV charging plugs will provide employees even more accessibility to charge at work.
General Motors is adding 3,500 new EV charging plugs throughout its U.S. and Canadian facilities. This will triple the amount of charging locations GM currently provides.
“This is another step down the path to making EV ownership easier for everyone, especially for our own employees,” said Mark Reuss, GM president. “Charging infrastructure is crucial to wider acceptance of EVs, and we’ll continue to do everything we can to improve it, both for our employees and for all our customers. We encourage other companies to do likewise.”
GM believes charging should be ubiquitous, and is reporting that currently “900,000 out of 1 million EV drivers are not able to charge their vehicles at work.”
“Over 90% of EV owners charge either at home, at work or a combination of both,” said Rick Spina, vice president of EV/AV commercialization and infrastructure. “We have new EVs from GMC for the 2022 model year and from Cadillac planned for the 2023 model year, and we want to make it as convenient as possible for our employees to enjoy the rewards of EV ownership.”
