As EV charging continues to evolve, ChargePoint, a leading provider of networked charging solutions, and Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) have announced a significant partnership.

The collaboration will integrate the ChargePoint network into the Porsche Charging Service, dramatically increasing the number of available charging stations for Porsche customers to over 100,000 across North America. The integration is set to go live in Q4 2024.

Expanding charging access for Porsche EV owners

The partnership between ChargePoint and PCNA marks a significant step forward in expanding the charging infrastructure available to Porsche EV owners.

ChargePoint is honoured to help Porsche provide their drivers with a charging experience that aligns with the rest of their renowned brand experience,” says 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.”

Enhancing the Porsche driving experience

Timo Resch, President and CEO of PCNA

Timo Resch, President and CEO of PCNA, echoed this sentiment, emphasising the importance of customer choice and convenience. “We passionately believe in choice, and as a result, we are constantly looking for opportunities to enhance our customer experience and expand charging options,” adds Timo. 

“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.”

ChargePoint network integrates into Porsche charging service

Seamless integration with the My Porsche App

The integration will seamlessly incorporate into the My Porsche app, allowing drivers to easily find, use, and pay at supported charging stations. 

The partnership builds on existing integrations, enabling both Porsche EV and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) customers to charge at ChargePoint and roaming partner stations via the app. 

As a result, all Porsche Charging Service customers will have access to more than 75% of the charging ports available to Porsche drivers across North America today.

Preparing for the future of EV charging

In late 2023, Porsche announced plans to implement the North American Charging Standard (NACS) charging port for future regional products. 

ChargePoint, already supporting all types of charge ports across its product line—including AC, DC, and home charging solutions—continues to pursue its mission to ensure a seamless charging experience for anyone who drives an electric vehicle.

underpins the collaboration, which reported the number of available charging ports in North America as of April 30, 2024. The data highlights the growing infrastructure and the critical role of partnerships like this in supporting the widespread adoption of electric vehicles.

Looking ahead

The ChargePoint and PCNA partnership is poised to enhance the EV charging landscape for Porsche owners significantly. 

By integrating ChargePoint’s extensive network into the Porsche Charging Service, both companies are ensuring that Porsche drivers have access to a broad, reliable, and user-friendly charging network. 

The collaboration supports Porsche’s commitment to providing exceptional customer experiences and represents a crucial step towards a more accessible and convenient EV charging infrastructure across North America.

The anticipated launch in Q4 2024 marks an exciting milestone towards a more electrified future.
