DETROIT — General Motors Co. is partnering with dealers to ramp up the installation of electric vehicle charging stations as it prepares to put more battery-powered cars and trucks on the road.
Through the Dealer Community Charging Program being revealed Tuesday, GM will work with dealers to get up to 40,000 Level 2 chargers installed across their communities starting in 2022. The charging stations will be available to all EV users — not just GM customers. The program is part of GM’s plan to invest about $750 million on charging infrastructure through 2025.
GM also revealed Tuesday a new line of three Ultium-branded Level 2 “smart charging stations” that customers can buy through dealerships or online. Ultium is also the brand name for GM’s new EV platform, propulsion components and charging ecosystem.
