Polestar partners with Plugsurfing to increase charging convenience in Europe

News

Polestar is partnering with Plugsurfing in Europe to improve electric vehicle public charging convenience ahead of initial Polestar 2 customer deliveries, scheduled for the coming months.

Info

The agreement signals yet another step into operational mode for Polestar.

With over 195,000 compatible EV charging points in the region, Plugsurfing provides a convenient solution to accessing and paying for electricity from a variety of public charging service providers.

“This international European partnership with Plugsurfing is the first of these solutions and it paves the way for more partnerships which will also include national and local solutions,” commented Polestar CEO, Thomas Ingenlath.

Besides the inherent convenience, a key benefit of the Plugsurfing partnership is the flexibility to charge easily especially when travelling abroad. Foreign bank accounts and the need for local mobile phone numbers can often hinder the ability to charge in other countries - Plugsurfing removes this requirement entirely.

The Plugsurfing RFID tag, which will be supplied as standard with every new Polestar 2 in Europe, allows owners to reduce the number of apps, accounts and authentication processes required to charge their cars from the thousands of different charging service providers in the region. Customers will register an account with Plugsurfing, and thus benefit from one payment and authentication solution rather than requiring unique apps and accounts for a multitude of charging service providers.

The Google Maps integrated into Polestar 2 is optimised for electric vehicle owners, and to ensure further peace of mind for Polestar owners in their charging experiences, they will be advised upon receiving their Polestar 2 regarding charging infrastructure and how to utilise the Plugsurfing solution specifically.
