"EV customers will soon be able to easily see real-time information from nearly 60,000 charging plugs...find stations along a route and initiate and pay for charging," GM said in a declaration.
The automaker also introduced "Ultium Charge 360", a platform that integrates charging networks, GM vehicle mobile apps, and other services to streamline the charging experience for its electric-vehicle owners.
