Cadillac partners with and ChargePoint for ELR charging

Cadillac announced a partnership with the ChargePoint electric vehicle-charging network in the world. The collaboration brings Cadillac ELR drivers immediate access to more than 16,500 charging locations on the ChargePoint network.

All 2014 and 2015 ELRs will include a ChargePoint Driver Kit in the owner’s manual. With a ChargePoint card in every ELR, drivers can immediately sign up for free and get access to ChargePoint’s network. The ELR has a total range of 340 miles and an all-electric range of 37 miles.

ChargePoint’s real-time network information including the availability of charging locations throughout the nation is available through the ChargePoint mobile app, online and via the navigation systems in top-selling EVs.

Every 10 seconds, a driver connects to a ChargePoint station. Over 4.4 million charging sessions, ChargePoint drivers have saved more than 3.5 million gallons of gasoline and driven 89 million gas free miles.
