After winning the 2019 iF Design Award and CES Innovation Award, EVBox proves again how important design is for EV charging stations.
Amsterdam, April 4th, 2019 – EVBox, one of the leading global manufacturers of electric vehicle charging stations and charging software, and creative design agency VanBerlo are proud to announce that EVBox Iqon, EVBox’s newest charging station, has won the renowned Red Dot Award for outstanding product design. Earlier this year, EVBox Iqon charging station won both the iF Design Award and CES Innovation Award, and is now adding the Red Dot Award to its list of achievements. The news was first announced two weeks ago at mobility conference rEVolution 2019 in Amsterdam.
EVBox Iqon charging station was built and designed to make EV charging accessible to all users. Features designed with drivers’ comfort in mind include the auto-retractable dual cable management system, the intuitive touchscreen and HMI design, and the compliance to ADA (wheelchair accessible).
