Lucky Supermarkets and EVgo Open Nation’s Largest Public EV Fast Charging Site

by Katie Lee

Fremont, Calif. — The 100th EVgo Freedom Station in California is now open and is the nation’s largest publicly-available multi-standard fast charging site. Located in the hottest electric vehicle (EV) adoption area of the country, the Lucky Fremont location features four 50kW DC Fast Chargers equipped with CHAdeMO and DC Fast Combo; the station is also pre-wired for as many as four more chargers, which can be added in just days as demand requires.

“This station is the first of a new generation of EV charging in America,” says Terry O’Day, West region vice president of EVgo. “With this installation, EVgo is crossing a threshold. We are already the largest provider of public DC fast charging. This station is the first of its kind to serve not only this generation, but the next generation of EVs with more power and range.”

“Lucky is thrilled to offer the convenience of electric car charging stations right at our store. These chargers are so fast, the car should be completely charged by the time a shopper stocking up on groceries for the week is finished,” says Mike Haaf, general manager of Lucky, a subsidiary of Save Mart Supermarkets.

DC Fast Charging allows most EVs to get a nearly full charge in less than 30 minutes.

EVgo has now completed 103 charging locations in California and has another 28 in the construction and permitting process. Nationwide, EVgo operates 500 Freedom Stations with more DC Fast Chargers than all other public providers combined.
