This momentum reflects growing EV adoption rates in the US as well as increased demand for public charging infrastructure. 

During the first quarter of 2024, utilisation on the EVgo network was approximately 19% nationwide, and the gigawatt hour throughput on the network nearly tripled year over year compared to the first quarter of 2023. EVgo more than doubled its registered accounts in under two years, having last celebrated reaching 500,000 accounts in October 2022.

As demand grows on the network, EVgo continues to roll out features that optimise the customer experience, including Autocharge+, the company’s streamlined plug and charge payment feature, which is now available to more than 50 EV models. 

Total charging sessions initiated by Autocharge+ more than quadrupled in the first quarter of 2024 compared to the first quarter of 2023. In addition to simplified payment options, EVgo continues to roll out more high-power charging, with nearly 40% of EVgo's bays now powered by a 350 kW charger, an increase from 22% at the end of March 2023.
