7-Eleven announced that it would be building a proprietary EV charging network, 7Charge, at select stores in the U.S., and Canada. Currently, several fast-charging services are in place in Florida, Texas, Colorado, and California.
7Charge sites allow customers to charge any EV make and model compatible with common CHAdeMO or Combined Charging System (CCS) plug types, and the 7Charge app will offer a seamless charging and payment experience.
