Volkswagen AG's unit Electrify America has said it has rolled out a new payment feature that would allow some customers to pay for charging their cars by plugging the vehicles into its charging stands.

The new feature, "Plug&Charge", will let owners of vehicles such as the 2021 models of the Porsche Taycan, Ford Mustang Mach-E and Lucid Air bypass the need to manually pay by card or app at Electrify America's more than 500 U.S. charging stations, it said.
