EVBox: Overview

Even though, EVBox is not a brand as well known as Tesla, the Amsterdam based ‘electric vehicle charging infrastructure and charging management’ company’s contribution to the fast evolving global EV market, is certainly impressive. EVBox was founded in 2010 with a clear vision: ‘a fully modular charging station that facilitates easy installation, maintenance upgrades, and above all, uncompromising quality and durability’.  EVBox has a global footprint that few companies in the EV industry have achieved.

  • More than 150,000+ charging points powering EV drivers
  • 5,000+ DC fast charging points 
  • 70+ countries 
  • 900 million electric kilometers charged in 2018 

EVBox’s position further strengthened in 2017, with the acquisition of the company by ENGIE, the energy utility and global service provider.  Very few companies in the EV charging infrastructure sector can claim the global dominance of EVBox.  A number of competitors are at ‘early start-up’ stages.  EVBox is active across Europe, North and South America. The company has established operations in the UK, led by Jonathan Goose, UK Managing Director.

Charging Your Electric Car At Home With An EVBox Charger Could Not Be Easier Or More Reliable: It Is As Easy As Charging Your Smartphone! 

Though much has been discussed about EV public charging infrastructure in the UK, the vast majority of charging is done at home, mostly overnight. It is therefore imperative, as an electric vehicle owner that appropriate home EV charging infrastructure is installed.  The benefits are numerous:

  • Faster charging speeds 
  • Lower risk (remember charging involves electric current)
  • Easy to charge (plug-and-play)
  • Saving money i.e. smart charging 
  • Aesthetic design that is sympathetic with your environment 
  • A place to neatly and safely store EV cables 

As part of the UK government’s strong commitment to ultra low emission vehicles (ULEVs) via the Road to Zero Strategy, the government has commenced a consultation process to mandate EV home charging infrastructure for new builds. Moreover, the government also offers an incentive via the ‘Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme’ of up to 75% towards green car home charging infrastructure. The government has so far supported up to 60,000 domestic chargepoints via the EVHS. As of July 2019, the government will only approve for the grant, home charging infrastructure that is smart i.e. ‘chargepoints must be able to be remotely accessed, and capable of receiving, interpreting and reacting to a signal’.  All EVBOX products are compliant for the grant.
