The EA site in Quartzsite, AZ at the Loves Travel Stop is full often on weekends and people have to wait in line already. That site is 100+ miles from Indio on the CA side and 100+ miles from Buckeye AZ. Very few current EVs will make that distance without an intermediate charge today, and that I-10 route is heavily travelled, Phoenix to/from LA.This is on top of GM and EVgo installing 3,250 fast chargers by 2025.arstechnica.com
On Thursday, it announced that it is working with the Pilot Company to install 2,000 DC fast chargers at Pilot and Flying J travel centers around the US.
The travel centers should have at least four charging machines each—GM and Pilot say that in total, they intend to place 2,000 chargers at up to 500 locations.
The chargers will be operated by EVgo, which has already partnered with GM on a fast charger expansion program—initially 2,700 and now 3,250—to be completed by 2025.
