Time Lapse Construction of EV Fast Charging Station

Feb 5, 2021

If you think EVgo fast chargers are fast, watch our construction partners build an EVgo Fast Charging station in under two minutes! Located near the corner of W. Manchester Blvd. and N La Brea Ave., this is the first fast-charging station installed in the City of Inglewood. The new EVgo Fast Charging station includes four 50kW fast chargers capable of delivering up to 90 miles range in about 30 minutes. The chargers are equipped with both CCS and CHAdeMO connectors, and available to charge all fast charge capable EV models, including Tesla Model 3, Model S, and Model X with a CHAdeMO adapter.

This site in Inglewood, CA was built by Electric Vehicle Infrastructures, a division of West Coast Construction Services, Inc. Construction began on February 11, 2019, and was completed in early September. It’s also one of seven Equal Access Charging Hubs (EACH) built across California as part of EVgo’s Communities Charging for Change program, which promotes more sustainable communities through public education and expanded access to EV fast charging. For more information on these programs, check out our EVgo Communities Charging for Change video on our YouTube Channel: https://youtu.be/beM168c5iOM.

Before the shovels and bulldozers even touched the ground, our EVgo site development team had already spent months scouting for the perfect location, building relationships with the site hosts, developing construction plans, and navigating through city and utility approval processes. What makes a perfect charging location? We’ll save that for another video. In the meantime, enjoy the two-minute transformation – and feel free to comment below. We love hearing from our customers!
