Deal With Uber Could, As They Say, Change Everything

ChargePoint, the leading supplier of networked chargers for electric vehicles, has teamed with Uber in support of a global vertical takeoff and landing transportation network.

“ChargePoint will develop the world’s first charging solutions for electric VTOL vehicles, enabling these aircraft to make more trips, serve more passengers and transform the way people get around the cities of tomorrow.

“The partnership marks a pivotal moment in the history of electric mobility and a major shift in the future of transportation,” ChargePoint said.


Uber calls the VTOL initiate Elevate, and has named partners including real estate companies, aircraft manufacturers, cities – and electric vehicle charger manufacturers.

Earlier this year, Florida-based ChargePoint distributor Apollo Sunguard was awarded a BPA/blanket purchase agreement by the GSA Fleet arm of the federal General Services Administration (F&F, April 7).

New GSA Access Too

The base period for the new BPA – designated GS-30F-GA082 – ends on February 28, 2018, with options extending it through February 2021.

Also this year, ChargePoint launched a DC fast charge line dubbed Express Plus (F&F, January 10) and subsequently moved to expand its operations to Europe.

ACT Expo 2018 – the next Advanced Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo – has been scheduled for April 30-May 3, 2018 – again at Southern California’s Long Beach Convention Center.
