Electronic vehicles are getting a boost from U.S. transportation officials as they firm up plans to establish 48 EV corridors nationwide, and BMW is playing a vital role in the process. Once established, the corridors will provide electric vehicle drivers with chargers along 25,000 miles of highway that cover 35 states, thanks to a consortium of states, utilities and vehicle manufacturers – including BMW.

Recently, BMW of North America revealed that the ChargeNow by EVgo program – which include ChargeNow DC Fast — are expanding to more than 50 metropolitan areas across the United States. Currently, EVgo’s network provides 668 dual-port DC Fast charging stations that feature supplemental support from Level 2 chargers, and there are plans to install at least 50 more to the program in 2017. EVgo considerately places the charging stations on highly-traveled roads near popular dining and shopping destinations.

Once finished, this program’s expansion will provide more than 92 percent of BMW i3, i8 and iPerformance vehicle owners with the opportunity to enroll in and take advantage of a program that is tailored to their vehicle. After they enroll, drivers can easily find EVgo chargers by using the BMW Connected app or the vehicle’s navigation system. Enrolled BMW owners use the ChargeNow card that came with their vehicle to access nearby EVgo stations, in addition to ChargeNow by EVgo no-cost or reduced-cost public charging.
