ChargePoint, Inc. Key Developments

BMW of North America, Volkswagen of America and ChargePoint to Construct Stations Along from San Diego to Portland on the West Coast and Boston to Washington on the East Coast

BMW of North America, Volkswagen of America and ChargePoint Inc. will construct up to 100 charging stations in "express charging corridors" from San Diego to Portland on the West Coast and Boston to Washington on the East Coast. Construction has already started on the Western corridor, where a string of new charging stations will allow vehicles to travel the length of California and into Oregon. As many as 100 stations will be up and running by the end of 2015. Each station will include one or two 50-kilowatt DC Fast chargers or 24-kilowatt DC Combo Fast chargers, developed by BMW in partnership with Bosch. Those chargers -- typically used for BMW and VW vehicles, as well as the Chevy Spark EV -- can bring a vehicle up to 80% power in less than 30 minutes. Each station will also include some Level 2 chargers, which require up to four hours to fully charge a car. The Level 2 chargers can power up vehicles including the Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf and the plug-in version of a Toyota Prius. The goal is to serve all models of electric cars.
