Electrify America to provide fast charging services to Lyft users

The ultra-fast DC charging on Electrify America’s network is automatically included with the vehicle’s weekly rental and helps ensure that Lyft’s Express Drive EVs spend less time charging and more time giving rides.

EV users will have access to seven DC fast chargers which have 30 charging ports.

Approximately 19 additional stations and about 75 more DC fast chargers are expected to be added by the end of 2021 in Denver.

 “This unique relationship with Lyft will be a game-changer in helping us advance EV adoption and in reaching new consumer audiences through infrastructure, education and awareness initiatives,” said Brendan Jones, chief operating officer at Electrify America.

“Lyft’s mission is to improve lives with the world’s best transportation, and part of that commitment is taking action to put more clean vehicles on the road,” said Cal Lankton, Vice President for Fleet and Global Operations at Lyft. “However, we can’t have an impact without providing our drivers with fast, convenient access to charging, which is why we are thrilled to be working with Electrify America.”
