EVBox Liviqo: a new generation of hassle-free charging for businesses
EVBox, a specialist charging solutions provider, announces its latest AC charging station: EVBox Liviqo.
To be released in the summer of 2023, EVBox Liviqo will enable commercial spaces, hospitality businesses, and workplaces to join the electric mobility transition by starting and growing an EV charging offering.
EVBox Liviqo joins the next generation of the company’s products, EVBox Livo and EVBox Troniq Modular, designed to accelerate the mobility transition by laying the foundations for a world where EVs are the new normal.
As electric cars increase in popularity, destination charging – public and semi-public charging at destinations including at the office, supermarkets, hotels – is becoming an essential part of tomorrow’s electric mobility infrastructure.
According to EVBox’s research, many EV drivers want to see more charging stations at destination charging locations and the vast majority (82%) believe that businesses should offer EV charging to their customers and clients.
For commercial spaces, hospitality businesses, and workplaces, this creates an opportunity to enter the expanding EV charging industry. EVBox Liviqo lets businesses meet the growing demand for destination charging by empowering them to start their electric mobility journey, offer EV charging with a hands-off approach, and scale their offering as demand for charging increases.
An intuitive, durable, and scalable charging solution
EVBox Liviqo delivers an intuitive charging experience for drivers while eliminating the hassle of day-to-day management and administration for businesses. The EVBox Everon charging management software allows businesses to manage and optimise operations by providing automated reimbursement, billing, and administration. Businesses can manage their charging offering remotely and receive advanced insights via EVBox Everon.
For drivers, EVBox Liviqo provides an intuitive charging experience. EVBox Liviqo is Plug&Charge-ready, an emerging technology allowing drivers to start their charging session simply by plugging in their vehicle. Drivers also have a clear overview of their charging session thanks to an improved user interface, guiding LED lights, and a high-resolution screen. Thanks to this experience, even new EV drivers will be able to navigate charging instinctively, minimising unnecessary contact for facility managers.
EVBox Liviqo allows businesses to start small and expand their EV charging offering as demand grows. Equipped with cluster load balancing, EVBox Liviqo allows businesses to add up to 100 charging stations in one cluster and facilitates energy use and distribution in an efficient manner.
EVBox Liviqo supports more businesses entering the market, by minimising the investment necessary to start and scale an EV charging offering.
EVBox Liviqo is the company’s most sustainable and durable commercial AC charging station yet. Built to withstand harsh weather conditions – from -30°C to +50°C – the charging station has undergone over 80,000 hours of climate controlled testing and has been accredited by labs including DEKRA & NM.
EVBox Liviqo housing is also made from the more sustainable, durable Makrolon RE*, an alternative to conventional plastics.
