Broomfield marks end of the line for Starbucks’ new Seattle-Denver EV-charging route

BROOMFIELD — Starbucks Corp. (Nasdaq: SBUX), in partnership with Volvo Group and ChargePoint Holdings Inc. (NYSE: CHPT), is building a network of electric vehicle charges stretching from Seattle to the Denver area, and Broomfield marks the easternmost point of the 1,350-mile route. 

While drivers of any EV equipped with a standard CCS1 or CHAdeMO receptacle will be able to use these stations for a fee, Volvo drivers will get to use the stations at no charge or at preferential rates, Starbucks said in a news release. 

The other Colorado cities with Starbucks locations along the EV route are Grand Junction, Glenwood Springs, Silverthorne, and Idaho Springs.

“Access to EV charging should be as easy as getting a great cup of coffee — and now, it can be,” Starbucks chief sustainability officer Michael Kobori said in a release. “We look forward to continuing this partnership with Volvo and ChargePoint, exploring new ways to enhance the Starbucks Experience and inviting customers on our journey to become a resource positive company.”
