Starbucks, Volvo and ChargePoint Place EV chargers from Denver to Seattle

Starbucks, Volvo, ChargePoint Map Out EV Charger Route

Up to 60 Volvo-branded ChargePoint DC fast chargers to be placed at up to 15 Starbucks locations along 1,350-mile route.

Starbucks Corp., in partnership with Volvo Cars, has announced the first Starbucks stores where new electric vehicle (EV) chargers, powered by ChargePoint Holdings will be available to customers and members of the public – part of the company’s commitment to a sustainable future. Four charging stations have been installed at the first Starbucks location in Provo, Utah, and additional places to charge will be positioned along a 1,350-mile route that winds through national forests and major community hubs from the Colorado Rockies to the Starbucks Support Center (headquarters) in Seattle.

These charging stations are among the first that are online and available along the proposed 1,350-mile route. By the end of the year, up to 60 DC fast chargers will be installed at up to 15 Starbucks stores approximately every 100 miles along the route, helping to provide much-needed new infrastructure for current and prospective EV drivers. While customers’ cars are recharging outside, drivers can relax comfortably inside with their favorite Starbucks beverages.

While drivers of any EV equipped with a standard CCS1 or CHAdeMO receptacle will be able to use these stations for a fee, drivers of Volvo Cars will get the added benefit of having access to these stations at no charge or at preferential rates.

Drivers of Volvo Recharge models with Google embedded can use the ChargePoint app integrated into their vehicle’s in-dash system, while others can use the mobile ChargePoint app, to find, use and pay for access to the ChargePoint charging stations at participating Starbucks locations.

The full list of communities with planned EV charger-enabled Starbucks store locations along the route currently includes:

  • Seattle, Wash.
  • Issaquah, Wash.
  • Yakima, Wash.
  • Hermiston, Ore.
  • La Grande, Ore.
  • Nampa, Idaho
  • Twin Falls, Idaho
  • Unitah, Utah
  • Sandy, Utah
  • Provo, Utah
  • Grand Junction, Colo.
  • Glenwood Springs, Colo.
  • Silverthorne, Colo.
  • Idaho Springs, Colo.
  • Broomfield, Colo.
