The initiative will focus on “highways, connecting city and rural communities, the East and West Coasts, and diverse metropolitan areas,” GM reported in a press launch Thursday. The charging stations will be offered to all EV brands, but GM proprietors can access exceptional reservations and bargains on charging. The chargers can present up to a 350-kW DC fast charge charge, but will match the vehicle’s particular charging require.
