Electrify America launched a mobile app that is designed to streamline the electric vehicle charging process and also introduced new membership payment plans.
Electrify America's mobile app allows users to locate a charging station; pay for EV charges; and check EV charge time progress, according to the company. The app is available for both Android and iPhone.
The company is also introducing two charging membership plans called Electrify America Pass and Electrify America Pass Plus, according to Electrify America. The Electrify America Pass includes the standard per-minute cost plus a $1 session fee, and the Electrify America Pass Plus is a subscription plan with the lowest per-minute price and a $4 monthly subscription fee. Members will receive an additional discount off of the standard pricing. Both plans will be available starting in late May.
Additionally, Electrify America will be changing its introductory charging cost pricing, currently at 30 to 35 cents per-minute, and will implement a roughly 20% reduction on those prices, depending on regions and local utility rates.
The company plans to install, or have under development 484 charging stations with more than 2,000 DC fast chargers by the end of 2019. The stations are located in 17 metropolitan areas, and along high-traffic corridors in 42 states and the District of Columbia.
