Atieva Bringing EV Chargers To Fremont/Newark (From The Look Of It)

July 20th, 2016 by  

Atieva chargingA recent post on the Tesla Motors Club forum by member “jay-bay” includes pictures showing what seems to be new Atieva workplace electric vehicle charging stations in the North Fremont/Newark area.

Here’s the full comment: “Hey all Just wanted to share that Atieva is moving in or opening a location in the building right next to mine. This is in the North Fremont/Newark area right on Ardenwood Blvd. Took these pics from the parking lot. I’m super excited! Can’t wait to see what comes out of here!”

As noted in follow-up comments, the electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in question appear to simply feature 220V and 110V outlets, rather than hook-ups for fast-charging. For workplace charging, though, that fast charging isn’t typically needed — a typical work day of 8 or so hours would meet the charging needs of most EVs out there even if nearly empty.


The news is worth making note of largely because of the company and location — as many will recall, Atieva is in some ways angling itself as a competitor to Tesla, and has some key ex-Tesla employees on staff. The company is reportedly planning to release an electric sedan in 2018, followed afterwards by 2 crossovers, in 2020 and 2021.

Here’s previous Atieva news for more context on this EV startup:
