Leading German energy company E.ON has partnered with Turkish sustainable technologies company, Vestel, to bring “ultra-convenient” EV charging to more drivers across Europe. The new partnership will see E.ON build upon its portfolio of EV chargers with the introduction of Vestel’s “sleek, and user-friendly models”.
A multi-sector pioneer of sustainable technology solutions and established in 1984, Vestel has become a driving force in electromobility, bringing an extra competitive advantage to the EV charging market with its award-winning range of EV home chargers and DC fast chargers.
Marking the first step in this partnership, the Vestel-made EV home chargers are being initially offered as part of a new E.ON cooperation with ADAC SE, Germany’s largest automobile club.
The Vestel-made range is claimed to be smart and networked, encompassing well-engineered entry level designs as well as powerful step-up models. The range’s compatibility with the E.ON Drive App means customers can charge en route at more than 30,000 charging points throughout Germany, and control their E.ON EV home chargers.
“We are pleased to have found a partner like Vestel who supports us in fulfilling the high customer demand for e-mobility solutions with well-engineered and attractively designed hardware,” says Mathias Wiecher, Vice President E-Mobility at E.ON.
Turan Erdoğan, Chief Executive Officer at Vestel adds, “Perfectly aligned with our commitment to drive sustainable innovation, this collaboration is another valuable opportunity for us to boost the mainstream roll-out of electric vehicle chargers. Our vast manufacturing scale and R&D expertise, as well as our flexibility and agility enable us to deliver exceptional value, high performance products. With our world-class manufacturing complex so close to Europe, we can also ensure greater speed-to-market, providing the fast product turnaround times required to stay ahead of the latest EV charger trends.”
