LOS ANGELES - February 5, 2019 - EVgo, the nation’s largest public fast-charging network, announced today that in 2018 electric vehicle (EV) drivers used its public fast charging network to drive more than 75 million miles, representing 88 percent growth from 2017. With more than 1,100 public fast chargers in 34 states and 66 markets across the country, EVgo now serves more than 125,000 customers who drive a full range of today’s fast charge-capable electric vehicles.
“2018 was a banner year for EVs, and EVgo’s 88% growth enabled 75 million electric vehicle miles,” said Cathy Zoi, EVgo CEO. “EVgo plans to double our fast charging capacity by the end of 2020, working with utilities to accelerate EVgo’s delivery of convenient and reliable fast charging across the U.S.”
With more public fast chargers operational in the U.S. than any other company -and more than one hundred fast chargers under construction- EVgo is responding to the rapid growth of EV adoption, new model introductions, and accelerated electric rideshare. With rideshare drivers regularly driving 5-7x the miles per week of personal use drivers, conversion of rideshare from gasoline to electric vehicles provides an accelerated benefit in air quality improvement and greenhouse gas reduction.
