EVBox has all the tools a partner would need to start and manage a charging network—no matter the size of the operation.

One of the standout features of EVBox BusinessLine is the flexibility of its charging capacity due to its output that can range between 7.4 kW and 22 kW. Due to the infancy of Argentina’s charging network, the charging stations at Carrefour sites will be set at 7.4kWh. As the eMobility industry continues to develop in the country, the flexibility of EVBox BusinessLine will allow each of the 100 EVBox BusinessLine at Carrefour to have their charging capacities upgraded to 22 kW.
With EVBox BusinessLine’s load balancing feature, the available power at all of Carrefour sites can be easily and safely distributed. In addition to this, the user-friendly and intelligent EVBox charging management software allows Carrefour and its customers to view insightful data on individual charging sessions and manage their accounts. With EVBox, Carrefour and ChargeboxNet will usher a new era of electric mobility in Argentina.
