EVBox recently announced the acquisition of the French ultra-fast and fast EV charger manufacturer EVTronic. With the acquisition, EVBox added 700 of the EVTronic fast-charging stations to its European network. EVBox currently has about 60,000 charging stations worldwide, the largest network globally.
“By adding EVTronic’s fast and ultra-fast charging (DC) expertise to our own solutions, we can now offer our customers the full scope of electric vehicle charging. This means charging ranging from 3.7kW up to 350kW (both AC and DC), and offering charging solutions at home, at work, and in public. Because of our strong R&D focus, we will be able to develop the hardware and software that our customers need to charge anywhere, now and in the future,” said Kristof Vereenooghe, the CEO of EVBox.
EVBox, which we’ve covered extensively, is a provider of public charging stations in cities like Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and Monaco, and it has chargers in 45 countries in total. The company is based in Amsterdam and wrote that its charging points provided about 36 million kWh of electricity in 2017 alone. It manufactures locally in the Netherlands and the US to eliminate shipping on long-distance container ships and the CO2 emissions that result from this form of ocean freight.
