Airbnb is also offering an additional $200 discount to the first 1,000 hosts who purchase an EV charger through ChargePoint.

Rick Wilmer, CEO of ChargePoint, said;

“Ensuring all drivers are able to charge when and where they need to remains our top priority. Together with Airbnb, we are removing barriers to broader adoption of residential charging solutions for Airbnb hosts and enabling a frictionless charging experience for their guests.”

According to Airbnb’s internal data, listings that offer a home EV charger are booked for more nights and generate higher average income compared to listings without one. In 2023, the most popular states for searches for home EV charger availability were California, Florida, Texas, Arizona, Washington, and North Carolina.

The homestay giant’s data also mirrors broader US EV market trends. From 2022 to 2023, EV sales surged by 60% year-over-year. California, Florida, Texas, and Washington led in EV registrations.

Airbnb’s partnership with ChargePoint marks a significant step toward expanding EV infrastructure across the United States, responding directly to the growing interest and demand for EV charging among hosts and guests alike.
