Smart forms charging partnership with ABB E-mobility and DCS

Smart Europe has partnered with ABB E-mobility and Digital Charging Solutions to deliver a ‘next-level’ EV charging experience.

Through ABB E-mobility, smart will have access to a one-stop-shop for AC wallboxes and related installation services in all of smart’s European markets. This makes the process of setting up a charger very straight forward for smart customers. The smart wallbox comes with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and ethernet connectivity as standard.

The products and services will be available online through a simple purchase and booking system via the smart marketplace. The set-up of the wallboxes can be booked through the system as an optional extra and will be undertaken by professional local installation partners.

With Smart Europe’s partnership with DCS, customers will now have access to a public charging network of more than 290,000 charging points throughout Europe, with more than 270,000 AC and 24,000 DC points.

Dirk Adelmann, CEO, smart Europe: “At smart, we believe it is the only logical step to offer our customers not just the car as means of mobility but to provide a complete proposition for real-life daily use. One of the key topics is charging and we are delighted to have found a comprehensive suite of solutions thanks to the strengths of our new partners in this area.”

Yifeng Tan Head of Connected Cars and Products, smart Europe. “In e-mobility, it is exceptionally important to build partnerships with companies that are leaders in their business fields. With ABB and DCS we have forged relationships that are not only created around the best possible home charging and public charging infrastructure solutions, but that are also rooted in a common set of values and an absolute dedication of delivering outstanding service towards our customers. With that we create a seamless user experience through native integration of the charging services into the smart app and in-car systems.”
