ChargePoint’s Revenue Leaps 102% YoY to $86 Million in Q1 2022

Supply chain disruptions resulted in a lower gross margin of 15%


Electric vehicle (EV) charging network company ChargePoint Holdings recorded revenue of $86 million in the first quarter (Q1) of 2022, a year-over-year (YoY) growth of 102% from $40.5 million in Q1 2021.

The U.S.-based company accumulated revenue of $59.6 million from its network charging systems business, a YoY increase of 122% from $26.8 million last year.

ChargePoint provides a comprehensive portfolio of charging solutions for businesses.

The company said that its business registered a record growth of 67% in Europe, which resulted in a sequential quarterly revenue surge.
