Amsterdam-based electric charging firm EVBox Group hit its target of doubling its number of installations in 2020, bringing its total charging port installations to 200,000 worldwide.

The company, established in 2010, has also announced plans to become a public company on the New York Stock Exchange as it looks to scaling up its business.

Speaking about the exponential growth of the company, Kristof Vereenooghe, CEO of EVBox Group, said: “I’m extremely confident that we’ll reach our goal of installing one million charge ports by 2023. In 2021, we’ll enhance our product development as a public company and continue to bring innovative and intelligent charging solutions to the market.”

Director of EU Policy at EVBox Group, Koen Noyens, said: “Despite Covid-19, last year has been an interesting year for Europe with strengthened emission targets set for the continent’s transport sector and EV sales continuing to boom.

Last year, together with ChargePoint and Allego, EVBox founded ChargeUp Europe—an industry alliance that is growing rapidly and working toward a harmonized pan-European charging infrastructure market. “It’s only by building an open and competitive market that we can deliver the best services for EV drivers, as well as infrastructure that’s accessible and user-friendly across Europe,” says Noyens.
