EV-Box Has Now Installed >50,000 Electric Vehicle Charging Points Around The World
September 14th, 2017 by James Ayre
The electric vehicle charging infrastructure firm EV-Box recently achieved a notable milestone. The company has now installed more than 50,000 charging points around the world, according to an email sent to CleanTechnica.
The CEO of EV-Box, Kristof Vereenooghe, commented on the achievement of the milestone: “With this rising demand for electric cars, comes also the shared responsibility to provide a good electric infrastructure. From our Manifesto of Electric Mobility we know that 55% of electric drivers in the US ask for a wider availability of charging stations. Together with passionate partners such as LACI we can give electric drivers the driving experience they expect and deserve. Hitting the 50,000 mark is a direct result of that ambition, which we are all extremely proud of.”
Vereenooghe also commented on broader context around the company milestone: “We see this alarming trend of record heatwaves and melting glaciers. Meanwhile, we are experiencing an ever-increasing consumer demand for electric vehicles and our charging stations. Large-scale adoption of electric vehicles is going to happen and it’s our mission to drive sustainable mobility by bringing leading electric vehicle solutions to the world.”
It’s noteworthy here that the company is now expanding fairly aggressively in the US, so the CEO’s comments certainly do seem to be backed by action.
With that in mind, I’ll end things here with this quote from him: “We achieved 50,000 charging points in less than 7 years and we plan on achieving the next 50,000 in less than 2 years.”
