Polestar’s partnership with Plugsurfing has taken a step forward as Polestar 2 owners will soon be able to charge at any of IONITY’s public fast chargers. This will be at a heavily reduced rate of €0.35/kWh.
Included with their Polestar 2, the Plugsurfing agreement already enables drivers to access over 200,000 public charging points in Europe with one platform for authentication and payment. This includes IONITY chargers
The big difference will be that from July 1 Polestar 2 drivers will get the new preferential charging rate. There will be no need for extra subscriptions, apps, authentication methods or charging tags for Polestar drivers. This is great news for Polestar drivers who will be able to keep their charging rates to a minimum.
Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO, said: “This is a prime example of how collaboration in the ever-growing free market of public charging infrastructure can be used to benefit our customers, much like our recent partnership with ChargePoint in North America.
“Not being limited to our own exclusive charging network means we can benefit from the expansion and evolution of infrastructure as the industry grows and as the shift to electric mobility gathers momentum. We remain committed to finding more solutions like this for our customers.”
