Volvo Car USA and Starbucks have opened the first public electric vehicle fast charging network at 15 Starbucks locations along a major route connecting Denver and Seattle. The 50 co-branded DC fast chargers can add up to 110 miles of range in just 15 minutes for compatible Volvo EV models.

Volvo Cars opens public EV fast charging network at U.S. Starbucks stores

The new chargers are conveniently located every 100 miles on average at Starbucks stores. This allows EV drivers to stop for a quick charge while relaxing inside with their favorite Starbucks drink. For Volvo EV drivers, the Starbucks charging stations can be easily located through the integrated ChargePoint app.

According to Mike Cottone, President of Volvo Car USA, “The value of this partnership is offering fast charging with great amenities. These Starbucks locations provide a perfect stop to recharge both the car and the driver.”

In addition to supporting the expansion of EV infrastructure, the initiative aligns with Starbucks’ sustainability goals to cut emissions and become a resource positive company by 2030. “Public EV charging should be as easy as getting a great cup of coffee – and now it can be thanks to our partnership with Volvo Car USA,” said Michael Kobori, Starbucks’ Chief Sustainability Officer.

In my opinion, the high-traffic electric vehicle charging stations that Starbucks is installing have the potential to be a clever growth strategy. By giving EV drivers a convenient place to charge up while enjoying Starbucks’ relaxed atmosphere and offerings, these locations may see increased foot traffic and sales.

The route connects several communities across Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, and Colorado. Volvo Car USA has taken responsibility for maintaining the chargers to ensure reliable uptime. This aims to build consumer confidence in public charging infrastructure, which remains one of the key barriers to mainstream EV adoption.
