Starbucks, Volvo teaming up to create fast-charging network using coffee store locations in the U.S.

Volvo and Starbucks are teaming up to create the first charging network for electric vehicles at the coffee company’s stores in the United States.

Powered by ChargePoint, the fast-charging network will include as many as 60 Volvo-branded chargers at up to 15 Starbucks locations.

In the project’s first stage, scheduled to begin this summer, the chargers will be installed along a 1,350-mile route from Denver to Starbucks’ headquarters in Seattle.

If you drive an all-electric Volvo, you’ll be able to use the ChargePoint app integrated into the vehicle’s infotainment system to find the next available charging station at a participating Starbucks location.

More importantly, Volvo owners will use the chargers at no cost or at preferential rates, while drivers of all other EVs will be able to use the stations for a fee.
