As more and more people switch to driving electric, providing the right service and road support becomes a crucial part of our offering. Our customers have to feel that no matter where they are or at what time, we will offer them the support to get back on the road. Our European collaboration with ARC Europe allows us to live up to these expectations, and we’re excited to continue expanding our European coverage. Kristof Vereenooghe, CEO EVBox

Strong investments from charge point operators, OEMs, and governments show a clear trend for future charge stations. An expected 1 million private and public chargers will be available in Europe as of 2020, growing to an expected 15 million by 2030 (accordingly to McKinsey data).
