ChargePoint Introduces Universal EV Charging with NACS Connectors

ChargePoint Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CHPT), a premier provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging solutions, has introduced the availability of NACS connector options for its new and existing products, such as the CP6000, CPE 250, and Express Plus. This new addition enhances the capability of ChargePoint’s services to cater to the charging requirements of any EV in any parking spot.

“ChargePoint has been at the forefront of the EV revolution for 15 years, keeping us prepared for evolving market trends and anticipating the needs of our customers and drivers,” stated Bill Loewenthal, ChargePoint’s Chief Product Officer. “Our flexible charging platforms, now paired with our NACS connector options, instill confidence in our customers about their investment in EV charging, regardless of the connector scenario. Our commitment to creating networked charging solutions that enable any EV to charge in any parking spot remains unwavering.”

ChargePoint’s DC product range, including the Express 250 and Express Plus, and the home-based AC products like the CPF50 and the award-winning Home Flex, will be available for purchase or reconfiguration with NACS connector options later this year. The CP6000, ChargePoint’s latest commercial and light fleet product, will also have NACS connector options available by early 2024. Additionally, the ChargePoint mobile app, which gives EV drivers access to over 743,000 active and roaming ports, now includes location filters for NACS, J1772, CCS, and CHAdeMO connectors, simplifying the process of locating and accessing the appropriate charging station.

ChargePoint’s charging stations, engineered to reduce repair and maintenance costs, offer cable modularity, making it easier for site hosts to swap, repair, or exchange charging cables and connectors, including the NACS connectors. The inclusion of NACS connector options to ChargePoint’s offerings ensures a continuous, integrated charging experience for customers and drivers, especially with the expected influx of NACS-equipped EVs into the U.S. market in 2025.
