EVgo Inc., which owns and operates EV charging stations, said it is partnering with Inc. to let drivers ask Amazon's Alexa, its virtual-assistant technology, to find and navigate to nearby EV charging stations.

Through the partnership, drivers would also be able to start and pay for charging sessions at EVgo stations, the companies said. The companies plan to roll out the feature to Alexa-enabled vehicles as well as offer it through automotive accessories later this year.

Through the partnership, customers would be able to search for and find the more than 150,000 U.S. public EV charging stations that are listed on PlugShare, an EVgo-owned charging-station map and app.

Shares of EVgo rose almost 5%, to $4.17, in premarket trading.
