The company said that the customer growth follows partnership announcement and business updates as it supports broad electric vehicle (EV) uptake and speeds up its network expansion.
EVgo says it has 98 percent uptime on its chargers, which are positioned at retail spots and in “other attractive areas,” according to the announcement.
“As EV sales skyrocket across America, we look forward to serving even more drivers as they go about their daily lives: shuttling kids to sports, buying groceries, or for professional drivers, getting a quick charge between deliveries or after an airport drop-off,” EVgo CEO Cathy Zoi said in the announcement.
EVgo has made a number of announcements since the beginning of 2021. For instance, it announced that the Nissan Energy Perks by EVgo effort has reached 6,000 members in March and recently celebrated the opening of public fast chargers fostered by the collaboration in Maryland and Washington, D.C.
In addition, EVgo unveiled a partnership with Midwestern merchant Meijer to bring EV charging stations to its supercenters.
The company says it has fueled over 282 million “zero-emission miles” since its start, “saving more than 12.5 million gallons of gas and reducing 114,000 metric tons of CO2, based on the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) GHG equivalencies calculator.”
EVgo, which was established in 2010, teams with fleet and rideshare operators, auto manufacturers, retail hosts like shopping centers and other stakeholders to install charging technology and “make it easier for all U.S. drivers to take advantage of the benefits of driving an EV.”
That same poll also found that satisfaction with EVs has much to do with range in addition to the availability of public charging stations.
