January 31, 2022, Campbell, Calif. - ChargePoint Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CHPT), a leading electric vehicle (EV) charging network, has been named as the winner in Best Practices Market Leadership Award in the European electric vehicle (EV) charging market in a new independent report conducted by Frost & Sullivan.
Frost & Sullivan’s Market Leadership Award recognizes that ChargePoint has achieved the greatest market share resulting from outstanding performance, products, and services. Frost & Sullivan’s analysts tracked over 18 leading operators in Europe to determine the Market Leadership Award, independently evaluating a wide range of criteria, including growth strategy, technology leverage, product quality, value, implementation, and customer experience through the electrification process.
The report recognizes that ChargePoint offers a robust portfolio of hardware, software, and support services catering to commercial, fleet, and residential EV customers. This has led to a network with more than 163,000 charging points in operation, 45,000 of which are in Europe, with an additional 290,000 places to charge available through open roaming agreements on its network. According to Frost & Sullivan’s Innovation Generator™ data intelligence platform, ChargePoint has strategic coverage of charging points in residential areas, inner-city roads, highways, and public places, providing quality charging solutions wherever site hosts offer EV charging.

“We are honored to receive this award. It is recognition of the key milestones ChargePoint has hit in the past year that demonstrate our commitment to the European EV charging market and complement our position as a leader in EV charging in North America. We are extremely proud of the team we have built in Europe, and what they have managed to achieve in such a short time,” said Pasquale Romano, CEO and President of ChargePoint. “It is because of them that we have been able to grow from market entry to one of the largest charging networks in Europe and a leader within commercial and fleet charging.”
ChargePoint’s impressive growth strategy in Europe, strategic partnerships, as well as ChargePoint’s recent acquisitions of ViriCiti, a leading provider of electrification solutions for eBus and commercial fleets, and e-mobility technology provider has·to·be, highlight the company as a continued and growing leader in the industry.
