Drivers of Honda electric cars to get access to all major US charging … –

American Honda announced two new roaming agreements with EVgo and Volkswagen’s Electrify America today, giving EV customers access to some of the largest charging networks in North America – all via one app.

Honda calls this “single-app access” through which Honda and Acura EV owners can find available stations, pay for charging, redeem credits, enrol in subscription plans and access other features at the EVgo and Electrify America stations and those of their roaming partners.

With these offers, Honda says it is the first automaker to offer its customers credits across multiple networks in the United States.

For EVgo, Honda and Acura charging packages for new EV owners will include optional credits ranging from $750 for owners aiming to maximize public charging to $100 for owners who select a Level 2 Home Charging Station and $500 installation credit. The middle option comprises a $300 public charging credit, a Level 1/Level 2 Portable Charging Kit, and a $250 installation credit, informs Honda.

The public Electrify America network will offer all first-time Honda and Acura EV owners 60kWh of complimentary public charging in each available package.

These latest agreements are in addition to the recent announcement that Honda will adopt the Tesla NACS charging standard, gaining access to the Tesla Supercharger network.

Moreover, the Japanese company recently partnered with six other major automakers to create a high-powered charging network.

Honda says that the combined deals and joint venture will give US customers access to most public American DC fast chargers starting in 2024; drivers should expect around 100,000 DC charge points available to them by 2030.
