EVgo becomes the first public EV charging network in the country to offer a rewards program for customers
LOS ANGELES, September 16, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--EVgo Inc. (NASDAQ: EVGO), the nation’s largest public fast charging network for electric vehicles (EVs) and first powered by 100% renewable electricity, today announced the launch of EVgo Rewards™, a customer loyalty program providing EV drivers the opportunity to earn points towards free fast charging sessions when they charge at EVgo locations. The launch follows a successful pilot program with more than 4,000 customers, making EVgo the first nationwide public EV charging network to offer a rewards program for its expanding customer base.
"EVgo customers’ #1 suggestion for us is to create more EVgo stations. And once we build them, those very same customers using our chargers are helping to fuel our rapid growth and expansion across America – and we’re excited to reward that. EVgo Rewards says thank you to EV drivers for charging with EVgo, for promoting transportation electrification on social media, and for just celebrating another birthday as an EV driver," said Cathy Zoi, CEO of EVgo. "EVgo customers are local heroes in addressing climate change in their own lives and we all should share in the rewards for that."
How EVgo Rewards Works
The EVgo Rewards program, launching today, will allow EVgo customers to be enrolled into the program automatically as it rolls out nationwide. Members receive five points for every dollar they spend charging their car with EVgo, and have the opportunity to get extra points for liking and sharing EVgo’s social posts, by visiting the EVgo Rewards website, for being a member on their birthday, and other activities designed to surprise and delight EVgo drivers. When customers reach 2,000 points with EVgo Rewards, they’ll receive a free fast charging session, equivalent to $10 charging credit, with EVgo. Members can visit the EVgo Rewards page to check their balance and redeem their points.
