FLO, a North American EV charging network operator and smart charging solutions provider, has been selected by GM as the supplier for its Dealer Community Charging Program. The automotive corporation’s program is looking to install up to 40,000 public Level 2 EV chargers in local communities across the North America region.
FLO will manufacture and contribute its CoRe+ MAX chargers to the program’s participating dealers. Providing users with a maximum power output of 19.2 kW, the new stations will be a part of GM’s Ultium Charge 360 network and FLO’s own network of chargers.
Through the Dealer Community Charging Program, GM and its dealers are working together to expand public charging access in underserved rural and urban areas. Participating dealers are eligible to receive up to 10 Level 2 charging stations from FLO, while GM will connect dealers with installation providers as needed. The charging stations themselves will be installed in a variety of public locations – including workplaces, multi-unit dwellings, event venues, colleges and universities. The first chargers were recently installed in Wisconsin and Michigan at a park, library, sports complex, and a wellness center.
The EV chargers used in the program will be built in North America, primarily at FLO’s assembly facility and testing lab in Auburn Hills, with support from its Shawinigan, QC facilities. With both, FLO is hoping to roll out more than 250,000 EV charging points to U.S. drivers before 2028.
