EVgo in collaboration with technology solutions provider Driivz have launched the EVgo Mobile app allowing drivers of electric vehicles (EVs) to locate the nearest charge point in a US network of 980 DC Fast chargers. It allows card-free charging that initiates with a single swipe to the right and enables drivers to check charger availability. The app is available for IOS and Android devices.
Features include a robust mapping functionality to find the closest EVgo station and; real-time charger status. In addition, it includes filtering options that enable users to only see chargers compatible with their car and; a charging timer that remotely monitors charge duration. Users can save favourite charging spots and access recently visited stations. It also allows access to charging and billing history.
A new driver portal has also been launched which works with the app and allows customers to review their charging history and plans, as well as update their information.
