Get ready for your shortest walk-through of an Ikea store yet because Electrify America is bringing its fast charging EV network to more than 25 Ikea locations in the US (via Electrek).

The plan includes installing more than 220 individual fast chargers capable of charging up to 350kW speeds at Ikea stores in 18 different states. The first public chargers will make an appearance by the end of the year and the rest by the end of 2023.


Electrify America, the charging subsidiary of VW automotive group, currently operates more than 800 stations with over 3,500 fast charging ports in North America. The 25-plus additional Ikea stations are just a drop in the bucket toward the company’s goal of adding another 1,000 stations by 2026. You can look out for the Ikea Electrify America stations coming soon to the following states: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Washington state.
