National Car Charging is promoting ChargePoint's network of more than 13,000 stations across North America and will honor the trade-in offer until December 15. Ecotality filed for bankruptcy protection last month and recently had its assets put up for auction. The winning bidder was a division of CarCharging Group, which paid $3.4 million for Ecotality's assets, including more than 12,000 installed Level II charging stations and 110 DC fast-charging stations.
In March, Ecotality and ChargePoint said they were forming a joint-venture called Collaboratev LLC. The partnership would allow for subscribers to Ecotality's Blink network to pay and charge at the ChargePoint stations, as well as vice-versa, and would allow for integrated billing. So much for that idea.
