Campbell, California — ChargePoint (NYSE: CHPT), a leading provider of charging solutions for electric vehicles (EVs), and Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), yesterday announced an agreement which will enable PCNA access to the ChargePoint network within the Porsche Charging Service. The collaboration will increase the number of chargers available to Porsche customers to more than 100,000 across North America.

“ChargePoint is honored to help Porsche provide their drivers with a charging experience that aligns with the rest of their renowned brand experience,” said Rick Wilmer, CEO of ChargePoint. “We are pleased to offer more charging options for Porsche drivers, and ChargePoint software will enhance their experience by enabling integrated and frictionless charging.”

“We passionately believe in choice, and as a result we are constantly looking for opportunities to enhance our customer experience and expand charging options,” said Timo Resch, President and CEO of PCNA. “This is a significant step in that direction, and well-timed as we look forward to the arrival of the new Taycan at Porsche Centers this summer, and that of the all-new Macan Electric later this year.”

The My Porsche app enables drivers to easily find, use and pay at supported charging stations. This partnership bolsters existing integrations, allowing both Porsche EV and PHEV customers to charge at ChargePoint and roaming partner charging stations via the My Porsche app. With this addition all Porsche Charging Service Customers will be able to charge at more than 75% of charging ports available to Porsche drivers across North America today*. The ChargePoint integration is expected to go live in Q4 2024.

In late 2023 Porsche announced planned implementation of the North American Charging Standard (NACS) charging port for future products in the North American region. ChargePoint currently supports all types of charge ports across its product line of AC, DC and home charging solutions, in pursuit of its mission to ensure a seamless charging experience for anyone who drives an electric vehicle.

*Data related to available charging ports in North America is from the U.S. Department of Energy Alternate Fuels Data Center database as of April 30, 2024.
