Over 100,000 chargers: ChargePoint and Porsche expand EV charging network in North America

ChargePoint Holdings, a leading provider of charging solutions for electric vehicles (EVs), and Porsche Cars North America (PCNA), have announced a strategic agreement that will integrate the ChargePoint network into the Porsche Charging Service.

This collaboration is set to expand the number of chargers available to Porsche customers to over 100,000 across North America.

Rick Wilmer, CEO of ChargePoint, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating: “ChargePoint is honoured to help Porsche provide their drivers with a charging experience that aligns with the rest of their renowned brand experience.”

“We are pleased to offer more charging options for Porsche drivers, and ChargePoint software will enhance their experience by enabling integrated and frictionless charging,” he adds.

Timo Resch, President and CEO of PCNA, highlighted the importance of the collaboration, saying: “We passionately believe in choice, and as a result we are constantly looking for opportunities to enhance our customer experience and expand charging options.”

“This is a significant step in that direction, and well-timed as we look forward to the arrival of the new Taycan at Porsche Centres this summer, and that of the all-new Macan Electric later this year,” he states.

The integration with ChargePoint will allow Porsche drivers to use the My Porsche app to easily locate, use, and pay at supported charging stations.

This enhancement strengthens existing integrations, enabling both Porsche EV and PHEV customers to charge at ChargePoint and roaming partner stations via the app.

With this addition, Porsche Charging Service customers will have access to more than 75 per cent of the ports available to the manufacturer’s drivers in North America.

The ChargePoint integration is expected to go live in the fourth quarter of 2024.

In late 2023, Porsche announced its plan to adopt the North American Charging Standard (NACS) port for future products in the region.

ChargePoint supports all types of charge ports across its alternating current (AC), direct current (DC), and home charging solutions, aiming to provide a seamless experience for all EV drivers.
