CAMPBELL, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ChargePoint Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CHPT), a leading electric vehicle (EV) charging network, and Fisker, Inc. (NYSE: FSR) (“Fisker”), driven by a mission to create the world’s most emotional and sustainable electric vehicles, today announced an agreement to enhance the driver experience and provide seamless charging access wherever and whenever Fisker Ocean drivers need it.
“Fisker, as a born electric car company without the constraints of the fossil fuel era, continues to push the envelope of design,” said Pasquale Romano, CEO, ChargePoint.
The ChargePoint network includes more than 210,000 active ports under management, with over 16,700 DC fast charge ports and over 400,000 roaming ports in North America, making it easy to find reliable charging. The two companies intend to make it easy for drivers to access ChargePoint’s industry-leading network of Level 2 and DC fast chargers, and roaming partner stations, which together encompass more than 80% of public charging spots in North America. Through the ChargePoint mobile app, drivers can quickly and conveniently find, use, and pay for charging enabled by ChargePoint’s charging network. ChargePoint’s mobile app also gives drivers the ability to track and view all of their home and public charging data in one place.
