Revolutionizing EV Charging: Major Automakers Unite for a Greener Tomorrow in North America.

Seven titans of the automotive industry — BMW Group, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes-Benz Group, and Stellantis NV — have forged a new path in electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure by unveiling plans for a massive high-powered charging network across North America.

Aiming High with Electrification Goals

The collaboration is set to tackle one of the most significant barriers to electric vehicle adoption: access to convenient and reliable charging infrastructure. Their ambitious venture seeks to install a staggering 30,000 high-powered charging stations in strategic urban and highway locations, ensuring EV owners can charge at their convenience, wherever they may be.

Setting the Gold Standard in Charging

Going beyond mere numbers, the network emphasizes quality. It promises an unmatched charging experience, offering a harmonious blend of speed, digital integration, and valuable amenities, all powered by renewable energy sources. Recognizing the diverse range of EVs, the stations will cater to vehicles of all brands, equipped with either the Combined Charging System (CCS) or North American Charging Standard (NACS) connectors.

First-of-its-Kind Deployment

The initial deployment of these stations will commence in the U.S. in the summer of 2024, followed by a roll-out in Canada. Every station will be designed to cater to the diverse needs of the modern traveler, boasting multiple high-powered DC chargers, and positioned close to essential amenities. Some flagship stations will even provide an enhanced experience, capturing the essence of the future of EV charging.

Addressing Growing Demand

As electric vehicles continue to surge in popularity, there is a parallel demand for efficient public charging stations. Currently, with a mere 32,000 publicly accessible DC fast chargers serving 2.3 million EVs, there’s an urgent need to amplify the infrastructure. Forecasts suggest that EV sales could make up over 50% of total U.S. sales by 2030, underlining the importance of a robust charging network.

Words from the Visionaries

The joint venture has garnered unanimous support and enthusiasm from the CEOs of the partner automakers.

This joint venture, backed by the commitment of seven major automakers, heralds a new era in EV infrastructure, promising to make the electric dream more achievable and accessible for millions across North America.
