Atlanta, June 13, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA) today announced it has signed an agreement with ChargePoint, a leading provider of charging solutions for electric vehicles (EVs), which will enable access to its charging network within the Porsche Charging Service. The collaboration will increase the number of chargers available to Porsche customers to more than 86,000 across the United States.

“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 both the new Taycan arriving at Porsche Centers this summer but also the all-new Macan Electric later this year.”

The My Porsche app enables drivers to easily find, use and pay at charging stations. This partnership bolsters the existing integration with Electrify America, 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 all J1772 and CCS1  charging ports across the United States. These additional charging stations will become available in Q4 2024.

“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.”

In late 2023 Porsche announced planned implementation of the North American Charging Standard (NACS) charging port for future products in the North American region. In addition, the company is exploring adapter solutions for existing vehicles to access the Tesla Supercharger network, starting in the first half of 2025.
