the launch of Autocharge+, setting a new standard for EV
convenience by enabling streamlined charging for EV drivers across

start a charging session in seconds by simply plugging in –
eliminating the need to swipe a credit card, tap an EVgo Program

convenient and easy, including locating and reserving a charger,
finding nearby shopping and experiences, and now with Autocharge+,
seamlessly initiating a charging session,” said Ivo Steklac, Chief
Technology Officer at EVgo. “The modern digital technology we’ve
