General Motors to install nearly 40,000 electric-vehicle charging stations in the United States and Canada, according to a report by Reuters on Tuesday.
The announcement comes just months after the Number One US automaker signed agreements with some companies to provide its customers access to nearly 60,000 charging points across the same regions.
The company announced it would expand home, workplace, and public charging infrastructure via its Ultium Charge 360 ecosystem, adding that it would focus on installing them in rural and urban areas with limited access to expand the adoption of EVs.
The charging stations would be available to all EV customers, and not just those who purchase vehicles from GM.
Early this month, GM stated it plans to double its revenue by 2030, signaling that it can build profitable software-driven services and take on Elon Musk’s Tesla Inc. The U.S-based automaker plans to spend $35 billion through 2025 on EVs and autonomous vehicles.
