EV charging-stations provider Juice Technology is to electrify car-sharing firm Mobility’s locations all across Switzerland, marking a major step forward for electromobility in the vehicle-sharing sector.
Mobility plans to convert its entire fleet – over 3,000 vehicles in total – to emissions-free electric-drive vehicles by 2030 at latest. Simultaneously, the company is quickly expanding its e-charging infrastructure. In a first step, 300 or more Juice Charger 2 AC stations are to be installed within the next three years at Mobility locations throughout Switzerland.
Mobility depends on simple, uniform charging processes for the electrification of its company locations that will ensure a reliable supply of electric power for the various models of electric vehicles in its fleet. Juice Technology delivered solid proof last year already that its charging stations fully meet Mobility’s needs. In a cooperative undertaking at the end of 2020 with the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) – Mobility’s biggest and most important location partner – the charging station producer equipped the first e-parking spaces for Mobility with charging infrastructure in Zurich and Aarau. The two companies are now directly collaborating.
“We’re proud to have an opportunity to support Mobility on their way to emissions-free car-sharing and electrifying their vehicle fleet. Our joint start with carpark spaces of SBB has demonstrated that innovative charging technology and quality clearly prove their worth. We’re looking forward to continuing our partnership beyond carpark sites near to train stations,” says Christoph Erni, CEO of Juice Technology AG.
“The biggest hurdle to electrifying our vehicle fleet is installing an e-charging network. This is why we’ve brought experienced partners like Juice on board to enable us to implement this project and drive this expansion as rapidly as possible,” explains Roland Lötscher, CEO of Mobility. “The future belongs to e-mobility, and, as pioneers, we want to blaze the trail.”
The high-resolution touch display of the Juice Charger 2 is simple and intuitive to operate, ensuring customers maximum convenience when using this equipment. The intelligent, omni-dynamic and limitlessly scalable load management system makes it possible to easily manage and control the charging operations of all connected e-cars on a central basis. The calibrated electricity meter built into the Juice Charger 2 ensures accurate billing, and equipment activation is enabled via the integrated near-field communication (NFC)/radio frequency identification (RFID) reader.
