Plugsurfing is excited to announce the latest addition to its alliance of carmakers, Chinese EV maker XPENG. XPENG drivers in Norway will get Plugsurfing’s charging solution and a cobranded charge key, which gives them access to public charging across Europe through Plugsurfing’s network of 300,000 charge points.
“It’s great to see XPENG join the club of international car brands that chose us for their European charging solution. We’re thrilled to have them as part of our alliance and to offer their drivers a world-class charging solution,” says Plugsurfing Chief Sales Officer Michael Warner.
XPENG is on a mission to bring technology to the forefront of the EV experience. Its XPILOT and Xmart OS smart EV software rival the EV leaders on the market. The partnership with Plugsurfing reflects XPENG’s commitment to innovation and cutting edge technology by giving its drivers the premier charging solution in Europe.
“As a leading EV manufacturer, we want to continuously enhance every part of the customer journey, which includes offering services that complement our range of vehicles. We believe partnering with Plugsurfing will help strengthen our offering to drivers across Scandinavia,” says Xiaopeng He, CEO & Chairman of XPENG.
XPENG brought its vehicles to the European market starting with Norway in 2020, and opened its direct sales store in Sweden, Denmark, and the Netherlands earlier this year. The offer with Plugsurfing is limited to its customers in Norway.
In addition to XPENG, Plugsurfing provides its charging solution to Chinese carmaker NIO in Norway and has longstanding partnerships with many European car brands, such as Volvo, Polestar, Renault, and Jaguar Land Rover.
