General Motors and Pilot Company (Pilot and Flying J) have teamed up for are a national DC fast charging network that will be installed, operated and maintained by EVgo. The network of 2,000 chargers will be co-branded “Pilot Flying J” and “Ultium Charge 360” and will be available to all EV brands at up to 500 Pilot and Flying J travel centers.
The chargers will include the fast chargers that charge up to 350 kW. Many of the charging sites will feature canopies to help protect customers from the elements while charging, as well as pull-through capability allowing convenient charging for electric pickup trucks and SUVs pulling trailers. The plan is to install charging stalls at 50-mile intervals across the U.S.
“We are committed to an all-electric, zero-emissions future, and ensuring that the right charging infrastructure is in place is a key piece of the puzzle,” said Mary Barra, GM Chair and Chief Executive Officer. “With travel centers across North America, Pilot Company is an ideal collaborator to reach a broad audience of EV drivers.”
