European EV charging brand Vestel has unveiled its first UK-specific Vestel-branded electric vehicle charger, the EVC04.
The EVC04 is branded as “a reliable, affordable single-phase charger for domestic and small business installations, packed with features and fully compliant with new 2023 UK electrical and security regulations.”
The move established the Vestel brand name in the EV charger market by offering installers and contractors an affordable, easy-to-install charger solution fully compliant with the latest regulations.
The new UK-specific EVC04 is based on the proven chassis and design of the European-spec 3-phase EVC04-AC22 models that have been installed in over 30,000 locations across mainland Europe on behalf of vehicle manufacturers, fuel brands, and energy providers.
The EVC04 boast 7kW charging from a single-phase supply and flexible charging scheduling via its App or web-browser dashboard. Wi-Fi or Ethernet connected, this compact charger is automatically kept fully up-to-date and secure against cyber-attacks, offers PEN fault detection and is fully compliant with the UK government’s OZEV & EVHS schemes as well as new cyber security legislation for EV chargers.
Speaking about the launch, Matthew Lang, Managing Director of Vestel UK, said: “We are excited to bring our successful EVC04 electric vehicle charger to the UK market, complete with a raft of new features designed to be fully compliant with existing and forthcoming UK electrical and safety regulations. With its easy installation in single-phase supply premises and affordable price, the 7kW Vestel EVC04 sets the benchmark for small EV chargers in the UK.”
“As one of the largest EV charger makers in Europe, the launch of the Vestel branded EVC04 is a further step in establishing Vestel as Europe’s premier supplier of affordable charging solutions for the booming EV market,” added Lang. “The move to bring the Vestel brand name into the UK EV charge space complements our OEM EV charger business that will continue to supply premium name vehicle, fuel and energy brands with models from residential units to the largest DC ultra-high speed chargers underpinning the UK’s growing EV infrastructure.”
The EVC04 will be available to trade from June 2023, via approved Vestel distributors.
