Starbucks, Volvo Add EV chargers
Starbucks, in partnership with Volvo Cars, announced the first Starbucks stores where new EV chargers will be available to customers and members of the public.
Four charging stations have been installed at the first Starbucks location in Provo, Utah by ChargePoint and additional places to charge will be positioned along a 1,350-mile route from the Colorado Rockies to the Starbucks Support Center 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.
“Access to EV charging should be as easy as getting a great cup of coffee – and now, it can be,” said Michael Kobori, Starbucks chief sustainability officer in a statement. “We look forward to continuing this partnership with Volvo and ChargePoint, exploring new ways to enhance the Starbucks Experience and inviting customers on our journey to become a resource positive company.”
