EUROPE. Polestar and Zaptec to offer premium home charging solutions in Europe

GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN – 4 June 2024. Polestar has announced a commercial and technical partnership with home charger provider Zaptec, bringing premium home charging solutions to its European customers.

Together with Zaptec we will also continue developments on innovative charging tech to deliver features like smart charging, bidirectional charging and vehicle-to-grid to our customers in the future.”

“We’re genuinely proud of this collaboration. Given Zaptec’s high regard for quality and safety, it’s only fitting to partner with those who share and understand our values. Entering into this partnership, we’re embarking on an incredibly exciting journey in Europe, particularly with our vehicle-to-grid technology.”, says Kurt Østrem, CEO of Zaptec.
