GM on June 23 announced the expansion of its existing collaboration with EVgo to add a new Plug and Charge service to the Ultium Charge 360 ecosystem.

GM is the first OEM to introduce a Plug and Charge feature to the company’s existing and future EVs that is designed to work on multiple, public networks in North America.

As of the June 23 launch, Plug and Charge is available now at nearly all EVgo DC fast-charging stations. In time, GM plans to broaden the service to include all compatible DC fast-charging stations across the Ultium Charge 360 network.


Plug and Charge works with all current and upcoming GM EVs built on the Ultium Platform, including the GMC HUMMER EV and Cadillac LYRIQ. It also works with Chevrolet Bolt EVs and Bolt EUVs with DC fast-charging capability, two of the most affordable EVs available in the U.S. today.
