For years, General Motors has been dedicated to improving its electric vehicle offerings and expanding access to EV technology. Earlier this fall, GM announced a new community charging program that would add up to 40,000 more Level 2 chargers across the United States and Canada. GM is planning to focus on underserved areas where access to EV charging is limited.
Starting in 2022, GM will begin investing nearly $750 million as part of its Ultium Charge 360 ecosystem for homes, workplaces, and public charging areas. Part of this initiative includes working directly with GM dealers to install Level 2 charging stations within the dealership community. These charging stations will be available to the public, not just those who drive a GM EV.
For customers who want to charge at home, GM is also offering its lineup of three Ultium Level 2 charging stations for installation at homes or businesses.
This announcement coincides with the release of the GMC HUMMER EV Pickup and SUV. These powerful all electric vehicles deliver exceptional electric performance including up to a GM-estimated 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque on the HUMMER pickup. With this power, the HUMMER EV Pickup is expected to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3 seconds. A strong charging network is key to boosting the appeal of all-electric vehicles. With its $750 million investment, GM is showing its commitment to the future of the automobile. Learn more about the Hummer EV and future electric GM models at Anthony Buick GMC in Gurnee, Illinois!
