Circle K aims to be a preferred destination for EV drivers along the I-75 corridor, offering convenient and dependable charge-and-go technology.

The NEVI program and convenience store operators play crucial roles as enablers of the e-mobility economy, aligning with the growing demand for EV infrastructure and supporting the transition to electric transportation.
