EVgo’s proprietary digital coupon platform now expanding to deliver on-the-spot promotions to customers charging at participating Cumberland Farms and Wawa locations
LOS ANGELES – February 15, 2023 – EVgo Inc. (NASDAQ: EVGO), one of the nation’s largest public fast charging networks for electric vehicles (EVs), today announced that EVgo Advantage™ is now available at select Cumberland Farms and Wawa locations in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and Florida. As a proprietary coupon technology, EVgo Advantage sends EV drivers instant communications and in-store promotions to use while charging,* delivering more value to customers who shop and charge.
EVgo Advantage enables businesses that host fast chargers with EVgo to connect with their EV charging customer base by offering promotions that help drive engagement, increase sales, and generate customer loyalty. The program can increase foot traffic to participating retail site hosts stores and/or mobile applications, while also enhancing the charging experience for drivers. A 2022 survey conducted by EVgo found that 87% of EV drivers shop at local retailers while charging their vehicles.
“When EVgo first piloted EVgo Advantage in 2019, we knew it was one more way for us to deliver value to our drivers and site host partners. We’re thrilled to be able to offer EVgo Advantage™ at select Wawa and Cumberland Farms locations along the East Coast to make charging with EVgo even better than before,” said Jonathan Levy, Chief Commercial Officer at EVgo.
EVgo Advantage first launched at 10 Lucky/Lucky California locations in partnership with The Save Mart Companies. Now available in eight states, the growth of the program to date demonstrates how site host partners can leverage alternative ways to connect with customers.
