EVBox has announced its new German office during the 30th Edition of the Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS30) in Stuttgart, Germany.
Munich and Amsterdam, October 9th, 2017 – EVBox, the global leading manufacturer of electric vehicle charging stations and charging management software, announced its ambitions for the German market during the Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS30) in Stuttgart, Germany. The adoption of EVs (electric vehicle) started relatively late in Germany, compared to countries like the Netherlands, Norway, US, and China. However, the last year has been a clear turning point for the #4 largest car-producing country globally. Large German car manufacturers like Volkswagen, BMW and Mercedes announced their commitment in creating an electric fleet with dozens of new EV models scheduled to arrive in the coming years.
Kristof Vereenooghe, CEO of EVBox comments: “We see a clear change in the way the German government, OEMs (car manufacturers) and drivers look at transportation — moving away from polluting combustion engines and towards a fully electric fleet. 2016 saw a staggering 100% increase in plug-in hybrids sales, making Germany the highlight of 2017 and the second largest plug-in hybrid market, after Norway. On top of this, the Dieselgate that dominated the news for the last two years, and the increased EV incentives instituted by the German government are further reinforcing the need for better transport, with electric mobility being the clear choice of the future.”
In order to support the ever-rising demand for electric vehicle charging systems, EVBox has opened this month its ninth global office in the city of Munich (Germany). Alongside this new office a new team is in place focusing on the DACH (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) region. Fermin Bustamante, Regional Director, shares his ambitions for the DACH region: “With the demand for EV’s in Germany rising, we see a great opportunity to use our expertise and broad portfolio of charging solutions to offer the best possible electric infrastructure at home, at work, in public or on the road. We intend to realize this infrastructure in close collaboration with both local partners and OEMs.”
