So in that announcement, there isn't a lot of new information, just repeating some information that was announced last summer.

That said, they claim they will be installing "in 40 metropolitan areas across the US". I guess we now know three of them (Belmont CA, Hollywood FL, and Seattle WA). Any insight on what the other 37 areas might be? EVgo has been very tight-lipped about their actual plans.

Tesla; 12 plugs, 12 stations, 12 cars charging.

EA; 12 plugs, 6 stations, 6 cars charging AND plugs can only reach 6 parking spaces.

EVgo; 12 plugs, 6 stations, 12 car charging AND cables are easily long enough to reach two parking spaces each.

This is nice 8-)

I can't wait to see installations like this from EVgo. In the Northeast, I have yet to come across an EVgo station with more than one, nominally 50kW, charger. In reality, most are limited to 100A (some support 120A), so you really only get 35-40kW out of them. Lame compared to EA.

Well so far, we only have 5 in the Seattle area so the rollout has not reached my town yet but I already have a 150/150 kw combo station less than 2 miles from my house so Seattle is a good location. I am doing a focus group which will require 6 trips to downtown which puts me 1.2 miles from the Whole Foods Broadway location.

Charging stations in metro areas are all well and good but, I can't drive from Milwaukee, WI to Minneapolis, MN. There are Level III chargers in Madison area but none between there and MSP. Guess I could find some Level II chargers along the way and make it a two day trip. NOT.

To be fair I've never considered my Leaf to be a good road trip car. An awesome urban commuter and grocery getter yes. Beyond that, not so much. If I was going up there I would just rent a car.
