EVgo announced that it will begin to deploy North American Charging Standard (NACS) connectors, which are currently in the process of being standardized as SAE J3400, on its fast charging network later this year.

The stations included in the roll-out will be capable of serving both CCS and NACS vehicles. Deployments will begin in key markets with high NACS vehicle penetration.

EVgo explains that overall utilization on the EVgo network in the first quarter of 2024 was approximately 19%, up from approximately 9% in the first quarter of 2023. Currently, about 40% of EVgo’s stalls are powered by a 350kW charger, which is nearly double the percentage from a year ago.

“The seismic shift in the competitive landscape for EV charging has opened new opportunities to drive usage on the EVgo network and accelerate our network expansion by fostering new site host partnerships,” said Badar Khan, CEO of EVgo. “EVgo had previously identified more than 100,000 potential stalls with strategic site host partners, and with recent industry changes, we welcome further dialogue with our current and potential partners on how we can collaborate to deploy more fast charging infrastructure in convenient locations for drivers.”

Just last month, EVgo also announced that it would expand its autocharge feature, as well as plans to expand its charging network across three US states.
