Polestar and Plugsurfing are launching a new public charging service in Europe called Polestar Charge. With over 650,000 compatible electric car charging points, Polestar Charge gives Polestar drivers access to the largest charging networks in Europe, including the parts of the Tesla Supercharger network, IONITY, Recharge, Total, Fastned and Allego. 

Polestar is the first EV maker in Europe to integrate the Tesla Supercharger network in its own charging app. 

Since 2020, Polestar 2 drivers in Europe have had access to public chargers within the Plugsurfing network, and special discounts on pricing. 

An optional £11.99 monthly subscription fee enables a discounted rate of 30% on more than 28,000 charging points for Polestar Charge users. The app combines with EV optimisation within Google Maps, which helps plan optimal charging stops along a route and activates a battery pre-conditioning function to help achieve the fastest possible charging speeds. 

“We know an important part of owning an electric car is being able to charge conveniently. With access to the largest networks in Europe and smart integration in Google Maps, we have made it easy for Polestar drivers to enjoy life with an electric car rather than worrying about where they will find their next charge,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.
