World’s First Ultra-Fast Off-Grid EV-Chargers to Be Manufactured in EU
L-Charge, a UK-based developer of ultra-fast grid-independent EV charging solutions, and DAX Industries, a production and engineering company, have agreed to launch a manufacturing hub for mobile and fixed EV chargers in Riga, Latvia. L-Charge's first product to launch was the mobile charging truck. The truck incorporates a mini-power station onboard that uses clean fuels to produce electricity.
Additionally, these mobile charging trucks can be called by users to a convenient location via an app, similar to how they would order a taxi. The L-Charge mobile charging truck provides super-fast charging, from 0% to 80% in 15-25 minutes. Global sales of electric vehicles amounted to 4.2 million in the first half of 2022, a 63% increase year-on-year, according to a Canalys technology analyst.
Large corporations are jumping on the green bandwagon, which in turn is pushing firms that lease and manage car fleets to convert to electric vehicles faster than they had anticipated. The cooperation between L-Charge and DAX could speed up the adoption towards zero-emission transport around the globe. "L-Charge are primarily focused on the distribution of our solutions across the UK and EU.
Locating our manufacturing hub in the EU helps us to take advantage of the common European market and Riga's developed transport infrastructure. Supplying our European and UK customers from Riga's massive port on the Baltic Sea would be quicker than from other locations further afield," says Justin Tarr, VP of Sales and Operations at L-Charge. "Our company has accumulated competence in logistics, engineering, production and sustainability.
For DAX, collaboration with L-Charge is a logical step towards progressing in the green transport field. Collectively, by combining our experience, we expect to occupy a significant share of the charging infrastructure market in the EU and, possibly, take advantage of the European support schemes to accelerate the 'green' transition," says Maksims Isajevs, the CEO of DAX Industries. L-Charge is a UK-based company that designs and manufactures unique fixed and mobile ultra-fast off-grid EV charging solutions powered by clean fuels.
DAX Industries is a newly established production and engineering branch of DAX Logistics, one of the leading commercial heavy truck operators offering auto transportation in Europe and the Baltic States.
