ChargePoint has announced a new partnership with BMW and Volkswagen to create a network of 100 DC fast chargers in the U.S. in the East and West Coasts.
The three companies will install 100 DC fast chargers will be compatible with the BMW i3, the Volkswagen r-Golf and other electric vehicles.
This new network of 100 chargers will be capable of charging a number of vehicle up to around 80 percent in just 20 minutes.
“A robust network of conveniently located DC Fast charging stations will go a long way toward increasing electric vehicle adoption and making electric vehicle ownership even more enjoyable,” said Robert Healey, Head of EV Infrastructure at BMW of North America. “The express charging corridors are another important step in the development of the U.S. e-mobility infrastructure that makes longer distance travel a real option for consumers, particularly along the most heavily trafficked portions of both coasts—making the BMW i3 and other electric vehicles even more appealing.”
“Volkswagen believes in a holistic approach to e-mobility in order to create a seamless experience for the consumer,” said Jörg Sommer, vice president, product marketing and strategy, Volkswagen of America. “The investment in the express charging corridor will provide e-Golf and other electric vehicle owners with the added support to travel their day-to-day and popular long distance routes.”
