GM's ultium charge 360 network across US

General Motors launched the Ultium Charge 360, providing access to ~60k plugs across US and Canada from the  seven major charging providers: Blink Charging, ChargePoint, EV Connect, EVgo, FLO, Greenlots and SemaConnect. The first three GM+EVgo sites are also live now, nine months after committing to add 2,7k fast chargers by the end of 2025. (link) While I applaud the 'consolidation' for easy use of different charging stations from the owner's perspective, there will always be misaligned incentives from the EV maker side using 3rd party networks (recently discussed this a bit on Twitter).

Electrify America announced $200M in California Zero Emission Vehicle infrastructure and education programs over the next 30 months as the third part of its 10-year commitment (due to #dieselgate settlement) of $800M investment in the state (link).

ChargePoint integrates with Android Auto now (link).

Let's go - Tesla Supercharger now at Mount Everest's base camp (link). And this week - Tesla reached 25k supercharging stalls installed worldwide:

Wallbox, the European EVSE supplier, is looking for a spot for a US manufacturing facility (link).

Ausgrid, an Australian electricity utility company, is converting some of its 13k street-side power kiosks into EV chargers (link).

Blink Charging acquired Blue Corner, the European charging operator with its 7k+ charging ports, for €20M (~$24M) (link).

Mobility, the Swiss car-sharing provider, is to make all its cars electric by 2030 and add at least 300 charging stations by 2023 (link).

France will drop the CHADeMo standard as it will be not mandatory to add it to the fast-charging stations anymore (link).
