Public fast charging network, EVgo Inc. (NASDAQ: EVGO ) announced Thursday the debut of an Alexa-enabled EV charging experience with Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN ).

People who own vehicles equipped with Alexa functionality, along with automotive add-ons like Echo Auto, can now utilize those technologies to assist them in locating and guiding them to nearby electric vehicle charging stations.

This update follows the company’s previous endorsement supporting Amazon’s voice-initiated EV driver experience during CES 2023.

“The customer experience begins well before a driver arrives at a station,” said EVgo CTO, Ivo Steklac. “Enabling voice-initiated, hands-free navigation to charging stations enhances the customer experience, providing peace of mind for EV drivers on the go.”

“Alexa is a natural way for people to interact with their vehicles, helping them do an array of tasks while they are on the go,” said VP of Amazon smart vehicles, Anes Hodžić.

“This collaboration with EVgo to make the process of finding an EV charging station through Alexa is the latest example of how voice and multi-modal experiences can make life more convenient and we're excited for customers to be able to try this for themselves.”

Shares of EVGO are up 0.99% in mid-day trading Thursday.
