Earlier this month, EVBox opened its official Lab Space in Amsterdam. Thanks to the new site, EVBox is able to test all of its future charging stations on actual vehicles in its own facility. The increasing number of electric vehicles on the roads means that the demand for charging infrastructure is growing day by day. EVBox is rising to the challenge by heavily investing in research and development (R&D) that will look to bring new technologies to the industry.
Amsterdam, January 30, 2020—The EVBox Lab Space is situated in Amsterdam-Zuidoost (NL), and will facilitate the development and testing processes at EVBox. This dedicated space for flexible testing on vehicles helps EVBox to improve its product offering and continue to contribute to the eMobility industry.

The Lab Space will house the R&D team, the Product Expert team, and the Product Validation team. Thanks to this new location, EVBox has the capacity to perform all kinds of AC and DC tests on different vehicles and loads, as well as further develop its load balancing and vehicle-to-grid (bidirectional charging) technologies. However, the Lab Space is not the only location EVBox has dedicated to R&D. In November of last year, the company re-opened the renovated Bordeaux facility in France, where EVBox produces 450 DC units of fast and ultra-fast charging stations per month.
The Lab Space also offers additional space for a training center that provides technical trainings for AC and DC charging.
The opening of the Lab Space was celebrated by 60 members of the aforementioned teams, as well as management that included Kristof Vereenooghe (CEO), Arjan van Rooijen (CTO) Daan Hobbelen (VP Engineering), and Merlyn Bijnsdorf (VP HR & Workplace at EVBox).
The EVBox Lab Space has already proved its worth with some of the advanced charging and secure communication testing that we’ve executed on new cars that will enter the market in a later stage. This dedicated space will bring EVBox’s research and development center to the next level to match the market’s needs.Arjan van Rooijen (CTO of EVBox)
