The latest fundraising effort comes during the company's most aggressive growth period in its history, powered by a broad solution portfolio that is accelerating the mass adoption of electric mobility for drivers and businesses.

New investors in the round include American Electric Power, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, Chevron Technology Ventures, Clearvision, Daimler Trucks & Buses, GIC, and Quantum Energy Partners (lead investor). Existing investors include BMW i Ventures, Braemar Energy Ventures, Linse Capital, and Siemens. Jeffrey Harris, a Venture Partner at Quantum Energy Partners, will join the ChargePoint board of directors.

“The broader energy and mobility ecosystem has recognized that we are at a tipping point in the generational shift to transportation electrification. Leading investors from automotive, utilities, oil and gas, and financial institutions are coming together to support ChargePoint's vision of an all-electric future as the mass adoption of electric mobility and the transition to electric fleets accelerate,” said Pasquale Romano, President and CEO, ChargePoint.

Investor excitement in ChargePoint's future underscores the need for comprehensive charging solutions required to power electric mobility of all forms including electric buses, trucks, and beyond. With recent executive appointments, ChargePoint has expanded its portfolio to facilitate the global transition to electric fleets, which are an essential component of enabling a sustainable and efficient mobility future, as they will drastically reduce traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions, enhancing transportation efficiency and greatly contributing to the clean energy economy.

ChargePoint will use the latest funding in part to further expand its network, continue to build its footprint in Europe and North America, improve the experience for EV drivers, and expand solutions for fleets as the market quickly approaches the mass adoption of electrified transportation.

To date, ChargePoint has raised more than half a billion in funding to enable a comprehensive smart EV charging network around the world. The company's latest fundraise comes just over a year from the Series G funding round that fueled ChargePoint's introduction in Europe.

In just 18 months, ChargePoint has established a team to support pan-European expansion. In addition, ChargePoint now offers a comprehensive suite of charging solutions that are being deployed across the region.
