First portable EV charger gets UK government funding approval
Unveiled at the Fleet World EV and Low CO2 Fleet Show in April, the Charging Solutions EVRESCUE unit has attracted the attention of roadside assistance companies, as well as car manufacturers and dealerships. It uses a mains-rechargeable lithium ion battery, which can be used as a standalone power source for recovery vehicles and fleets.
Operators are also able to access an onboard diagnostic module and smartphone app, which includes full details about all electric vehicles on sale in the UK.
Managing director of Charging Solutions, James Jean-Louis, said: ‘As the electric vehicle market develops, the need for a mobile transportable energy source is becoming more important, not only to reduce range anxiety but also to provide a temporary cost-effective power for electric cars.
‘EVRESCUE is unique in that it offers a flexible, available and mobile power source, whether that's at the side of a road in an emergency or in a car showroom. This is the only totally portable EV charger in the world – it does not require the unit to be loaded onto a trailer.’
An interview with James Jean-Louis explaining the features of the EVRESCUE unit is included in the EV and Low CO2 Fleet Show report of EV Fleet World magazine, available HERE.
