“As more EVs come to market, their drivers continue to choose ChargePoint as their network of choice, propelling us over the one million quarterly active user mark,” said Pasquale Romano, CEO of ChargePoint. “ChargePoint remains focused on delivering the best driver experience available, so the redesign of our mobile app joins our enhanced reliability initiatives to ensure drivers can find, use and pay for charging in the most convenient way possible.”
In the United States alone, two million EV drivers have used a ChargePoint account to start a charge. With 3.6 million electric vehicles on US roads, this means approximately half of US EV drivers have used ChargePoint to facilitate their charging needs. In fact, the ChargePoint network represents 36% of all public charging ports in North America, and 70% of public networked AC ports1.
In celebration of the milestone, ChargePoint is releasing an updated version of its mobile app that further simplifies the user experience for drivers to seamlessly charge their vehicle wherever they live, work, and play. The app updates rest upon three key pillars:
- Usability, including improved tabs and filters that enable simpler app navigation, while helping drivers find what they need.
- Station discovery and use, delivering a better experience when EV drivers start a charge with the app, and clear station identification so EV drivers always use the right parking spot.
- Answers at EV driver’s fingertips, with an expanded FAQ that has everything a user needs to know for charging an EV at home and on the road.
The ChargePoint mobile app is available on all major mobile platforms, including Android, Android Auto, iOS, macOS, and Apple Watch. The ChargePoint mobile app now offers Android, iPhone, iPad, and Mac Widgets that help EV drivers find charging stations, see charging status, and more. The ChargePoint mobile app is available now for free download in the iOS App Store and Google Play.
