New Tesla CCS Combo 1 Adapter enables drivers to take advantage of Autocharge+ technology and high-power charging across the EVgo network
LOS ANGELES – EVgo Inc., one of the nation’s largest public fast charging networks for electric vehicles, today unveiled a new promotional charging plan exclusively for Tesla Model S, 3, X and Y drivers and announced that Autocharge+ is available for Tesla drivers with the CCS Combo 1 Adapter at nearly all EVgo DC fast charging locations.
All Tesla drivers can enroll in the new limited-time Tesla Plus Promo plan via the EVgo app and drivers with the CCS Combo 1 Adapter can enroll in Autocharge+ for automatic session initiation and billing. Capable of charging up to 250kW and compatible with most Tesla vehicles on the market, the new adapter unlocks access to high-power charging for Tesla drivers on the EVgo network —and gives them a seamless charging experience with the added benefit of the EVgo app that allows drivers to monitor their charging sessions, view real-time charger availability, reserve chargers and more.
The new promotional plan gives Tesla drivers a free three-month trial of the EVgo Plus subscription plan, which offers access to lower charging rates and free charger reservations at select stations with EVgo Reservations™. While this offer is available exclusively for Tesla drivers, both new customers and existing Tesla EVgo customers can sign up for the promotion via the EVgo app. This limited-time promotion is valid through December 31, 2022.
“EVgo launched Autocharge+ to give EV drivers a simple and seamless charging experience at our DC fast charging locations,” said Cathy Zoi, CEO at EVgo. “Combining the innovations of Autocharge+ with the release of the CCS Combo 1 Adapter and our new promotional charging plan, Tesla drivers can take advantage of high-power charging on the EVgo network in convenient locations across the U.S.”
To enroll in the Tesla Plus Promo plan and Autocharge+, Tesla drivers need to download the EVgo app and add their Tesla VIN in the vehicle section. To complete enrollment in Autocharge+, drivers must plug into an EVgo charger with the adapter.
