The all-new Cadillac Lyriq electric SUV is only one of the steps in Cadillac and GM’s plans to introduce a new EV every six months or so. One major obstacle that cannot be ignored, an element that is in part responsible for Tesla’s success, is a charging network.

GM has announced its partnership with EVgo that will see 2,7000 new charging stations be installed in 40 metropolitan areas in the US over the next five years. As for Canada, General Motors of Canada spokesperson Philippe-André Bisson told Electric Autonomy that GM Canada is actively on the case.

“In Canada, we’re also committed to investing, incentivizing, and working with companies to bring charging solutions to the Canadian market,” Bisson says. “We’re actively collaborating with charge point operators on approaches to EV infrastructure using a shared charging network to make the charging experience easier for our customers.”

The idea behind these steps is to provide electric vehicle customers with a full and fulfilling experience, and one that is as convenient as possible.
