GM has approved EV Connect as a solution provider to support the deployment of charging stations at GM dealerships across the US and Canada. EV Connect will provide its charging management solutions, which include data analytics and 24/7 customer support. The first charging stations under the new program have been installed at select GM dealers, and more are scheduled for this year.
Through EV Connect’s open charging cloud platform, GM dealerships be able to optimize charging solutions to meet individual dealership needs. EV Connect’s software management platform enables dealers to control access, set pricing and make reservations, and provides load management tools to control energy costs.
EV Connect has also joined GM’s Ultium Charge 360 platform. GM EV owners will now be able to find EV Connect’s 5,000 public chargers through GM mobile apps.
“With 30 new EV models coming to market globally by 2025, we are committed to providing reliable EV charging for drivers and service departments,” said Hossein Hassani, GM Director, EV Ecosystem. “To do this, our dealerships need to be equipped with reliable, efficient, and simple-to-use EV charging infrastructure.”
“As GM actively prepares its dealerships for their forthcoming EV models, we are excited to help bring flexibility and scalability to EV charging for GM dealers today,” said EV Connect co-founder and CEO Jordan Rame. “Already in short order, we have more than 500 dealerships signed up for the program that are looking to electrify.”
