Hubject Inc. is partnering with Volta Charging to try and make it easier for you to find a charger.

Hubject is a Berlin-based joint venture between automakers like BMW and Volkswagen along with EV tech companies like Bosch and Siemens. The company was started in 2012 to try and streamline EV charger access.

The company’s Intercharge network allows drivers to be a member of one charging network but have access to any charger that is part of the network around the world. It also allows customers with no charging contract at all to pay with PayPal or a credit card at the station with no registration required.

Think of it like the NYCE network that lets you use your bank card at ATMs belonging to other banks. The network has more than 63,000 charging points with over 300 partners in 26 countries.

Importantly, the company also provides data to automakers that lets them add charging station locations and information to vehicle navigation systems for over 60 automakers and e-mobility service providers.

Volta Charging is Hubject’s first North American partner network.

Access to Volta’s chargers in the U.S. is free, but finding them can be difficult. Especially if you are out of your home area. Being part of the Intercharge network makes the stations easier to find by making them part of a bigger database, and having them added to in-car navigation systems.

Volta Charging offers the largest free EV charging network in the U.S. The company partners with major brands and has them sponsor free public charging stations. That means chargers with no cost to the user and no cost to the location that has them installed. Volta has nearly 400 charging stations installed in major cities across the country and expects to double network size in 2018.
