Nation’s Largest Public Fast Charging Network to Support Drivers of the All-New 2023 Subaru Solterra, their first all-electric SUV
EVgo Inc., the nation’s largest public fast charging network for electric vehicles (EVs) and first powered by 100% renewable electricity announced the company has been selected as the preferred EV charging partner of Subaru of America, Inc. This news comes on the heels of Subaru unveiling its first ever zero-emissions vehicle, the all-new 2023 Solterra EV SUV, at the LA Auto Show in November and opening reservations this month. Subaru drivers will have access to all the benefits of EVgo’s industry-leading network, with its proven reliability, broad geographic reach and 24/7 customer support.
With EVgo’s network powered by 100% renewable electricity, Subaru drivers can enjoy a zero emission driving experience, as well as the convenience of charging at more than 800 public fast charging locations and 1,200+ L2 charging stalls spanning 68 metropolitan areas and 35 states. In addition, drivers can access more than 46,000 L2 and DC fast charge public chargers through EVgo’s roaming partners across the country. EVgo continues to build out its fast charging network and is currently planning to have approximately 16,000 charging stalls deployed by 2027.
All Subaru EVgo account holders can also count on the 24/7 customer support of the EVgo Charging Crew for assistance. All Subaru drivers will have access to EVgo’s mobile app for finding fast chargers, initiating, and monitoring charging sessions, and earning and tracking EVgo Rewards points towards free charging credits.
The 2023 Subaru Solterra is the automaker’s first all-electric SUV and its first battery-electric vehicle to be released globally. Slated to begin sales in mid-2022, the new Solterra features standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, active safety technology and the estimated range of over 220 miles.
“Subaru and EVgo share a commitment to performance, reliability, and being good stewards of the environment, which is why we’re excited to partner up to deliver convenient charging for Solterra drivers,” said David Sullivan, Product Marketing Launch Manager at Subaru. “We know that access to convenient and affordable charging is key to accelerating EV adoption, and the Subaru EVgo partnership will deliver just that for our first fully electric drivers.”
“EVgo has a long history of working with automakers leading the charge on EVs, and we are delighted to partner with Subaru to make sure Solterra drivers have convenient and reliable charging options,” said Cathy Zoi, Chief Executive Officer at EVgo. “We are looking forward to welcoming Subaru drivers to the EVgo network and supporting Subaru drivers on their urban and outdoor adventures.”
Today, more than 130 million people in the U.S. live within a 10-mile drive of an EVgo fast charger. EVgo maintains industry leading network reliability and focuses on building stations in convenient locations at the grocery, retail and entertainment centers. EVgo stations feature charging stalls that range from 50 kW to high power 350 kW, charging vehicles up to 80% in 15-45 minutes. 1
