General Motors (GM)-owned Chevrolet is to install Coulomb Technologies’ charging points at its dealerships ahead of the rollout of its electric hybrid, the Volt.
Chevrolet’s home charging installation partner, SPX, will install hundreds of Coulomb’s Level II 240 V ChargePoint charging stations to dealers across the US.
The first has already been installed at Chevrolet’s dealership in Irvine, California, as well as the company’s headquarters in Detroit.
“This partnership means that Chevrolet dealers can showcase the Volt and demonstrate the innovativeness and convenience Coulomb’s ChargePoint stations provide,” says Richard Lowenthal, CEO of Coulomb Technologies.
Last summer, Coulomb Technologies embarked on a $37 million programme to install 5000 charging stations in nine regions across the US, including California, Florida, New York, Texas and Washington DC.
