Rove Plans Rollout of EV Charging Stations in Inland Empire, Orange County

Rove, a developer of full-service electric vehicle (EV) charging centers, plans to build six locations in Southern California starting in 2023, with a longer-term goal of 20 locations by 2026. First up will be facilities in Corona in Riverside County, as well as Santa Ana and Costa Mesa in Orange County. 

Each Rove will host 40 ultra-fast, direct-current fast chargers capable of reaching speeds up to 350 kW, making a full charge possible in as little as 15 minutes, the company said. Onsite amenities will include a market with all-natural and organic meals and grocery options, car wash, restrooms, free Wi-Fi, lounge and patio. 

“Fast. Safe. Reliable. These are all things EV charging should be but isn’t. We plan to change that,” said Rove CEO and long-time EV owner Nathan McDonnell. “Our goal is to raise the bar by providing fast charging, clean amenities, and onsite support.”
