GM Announces Ultium Charge 360 Multi-Network Charging

Electric utility

  • Access to nearly 60,000 plugs through one app

  • First of GM’s 350 kW L3 stations now open


General Motors is working to bring a host of new electric vehicles to market, and now it’s announced somewhere to charge. Ultium Charge 360 is GM’s new offering that will let your GM EV charge simply and easily at nearly 60,000 plugs across the US and Canada. The company also expects to have 500 Ultium-ready ultra-fast chargers live by the end of the year.

Ultium Charge 360 will see GM work with third party charging station provides as well as government agencies and utilities to make charging more seamless than the current situation that can end up with users having multiple accounts for the many fast-charge networks. GM has agreements with seven major charge providers to start including Blink, ChargePoint, EVgo, and Flo.

The nearly 60,000 charge points will soon be visible through GM’s mobile apps for specific vehicles, letting users find charge stations along their route and access or pay for charging at multiple providers through that one app and account.

To take advantage of the Ultium platform’s 800V fast-charging, GM and EVgo have added the first of what are expected to be more than 2,700 sites by the end of 2025. The first stations are now open in California, Washington, and Florida, allowing up to 350 kW charging with an average of four stalls per site.

Making the electric charging grid as simple as a gas station for users is an important step toward EV adoption, with some automakers pursuing this by building their own network (Tesla, Volkswagen), and others (Ford) working to allow seamless access over multiple existing providers. Ultium Charge 360 would give GM the largest such network yet announced.
