General Motors and Bechtel to build electric vehicle charging stations

General Motors is planning to join hands with construction firm Bechtel to build charging stations across the United States for electric vehicles, Reuters reported.

The automaker said the partnership was at a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) stage and the business structure for the tie-up had not yet been finalised.

“This collaboration and future build-out will help alleviate issues with customers’ range anxiety by leveraging GM and Bechtel’s scale, flexibility and proprietary data to provide chargers in locations convenient to EV customers,” General Motors said.
