ChargePoint, the world’s largest electric vehicle (EV) charging network, announced that it has surpassed 100,000 places to charge on its global network, which is now expanding at more than 2,000 new charging spots each month.
This milestone comes as several new features and integrations become available, helping to enable mass adoption of electric mobility by making charging more accessible and seamless.
“Since day one, the ChargePoint team has created solutions that make it easier for drivers and businesses to go electric with the goal of ensuring that all people and goods are transported on electricity,” said Colleen Jansen, Chief Marketing Officer at ChargePoint. “The complete transformation of how drivers, cities and businesses approach mobility is afoot, and we’re proud to play a key role in delivering on solutions that will help pave the way to the mass adoption of electric mobility for years to come.”
The activation of the 100,000th place to charge marks a significant milestone in the company’s history, as it continues to expand geographically and into new lines of business. To continue to deliver on its commitment of making the transition to electric more seamless, the company has introduced new features that will improve the driver experience and continue to show how easy it is to drive an EV.
The ChargePoint team has continued to work to expand access to charging by implementing roaming agreements with other EV charging networks, including Electrify America, EVBox, EVgo, Greenlots, FLO and others in North America and Europe. In North America alone, drivers using the ChargePoint app will have access to nearly 100% of public DC fast chargers and more than 80% of publicly available level 2 AC stations by the end of 2019. This universal access fundamentally will make driving electric even more seamless than driving a gas-powered vehicle.
