Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs on DRIVEtheARC Charging Station
What is the free-charge campaign?
This campaign offers you no-cost charging using the DRIVEtheARC App at the DRIVEtheARC stations.
Which EVs are eligible for the campaign?
This project aims to evaluate EV driving behavior analysis before/after the QC network rollout and real time information service provision. For the project purpose, EV models with capability to provide probe data for before/after analysis will primarily be eligible for the “charge for free” campaign. Due to the specification of the QC protocol of the eligible EVs, chargers don’t recognize the EV models at the time of charging if they also use the same QC protocol. Thus other EV models using the same QC protocol as the eligible EVs will also be eligible for the “charge for free” campaign.
How long is the free-charge campaign period?
The campaign period has not been determined yet. The end of the campaign period will be announced on the DRIVEtheARC home page in the future.
What will happen after the end of the free-charge campaign?
Charging fees will be charged to your own credit card associated with your EVgo account.
Which EVs can be charged at DRIVEtheARC stations?
All CHAdeMO EVs and Combo EVs can be charged at DRIVEtheARC stations.
