EVgo Inc. (NASDAQ: EVGO ) revealed Wednesday its plans to expand its collaboration with regional grocery retailer, Meijer.

The new EVgo stations will be built in Ohio offering up to six stalls at select Meijer locations. These stations will be equipped with high-power 350kW chargers, enabling rapid charging for EV drivers, facilitating a swift return to the road.

Expanding their current collaboration, EVgo and Meijer aim to enhance access to public charging for both present and future EV drivers in the Midwest.

The partnership extension follows the deployment of 24 charging stalls at six Meijer sites across Michigan and Ohio by EVgo. These stations strategically cover vital metropolitan areas like Detroit, Cincinnati, and Columbus.

Grocery stores are a prime location for drivers to plug in to fill their cars and carts at the same time,” said Dennis Kish, Chief Operating Officer at EVgo.

“By partnering with Meijer, we can help EV drivers across the Midwest take advantage of convenient public charging while they take care of their shopping list.” Added Kish.

Shares of EVGo are up 7.73% in afternoon trading on Wednesday.
