Registering a public charging account

Register a charging account in the Volvo Cars app1 to easily find charging stations connected to the Volvo public charging service (VPCS) and to pay for your charging sessions.

The Volvo Cars app needs to be paired with your car before you can register the charging account.

Go to the Px-2037-VOC app icon Map tab in the Volvo Cars app.
Press the Get started button and follow the instructions.

During registration, you select the tariff that suits your needs and you can also order a charging card. Currently, you can only have one card connected to your account.


You can access VPCS charging stations before your charging card has arrived. Many stations accept remote start and stop via the Volvo Cars app. This means that you plug in the charger, then start and stop the session from your app. Use the charging method filter function to find these stations.

Activate your charging card

You need to activate your charging card when you receive it.
Go to the Px-2037-VOC app icon Map tab in the Volvo Cars app.
Select Activate card and follow the instructions.
