eMotorWerks JuiceBox Charging Station
eMotorWerks celebrates 3,500 JuiceBox Smart charging stations deliveries.
Sales are on a rising curve with volumes expected to double in 2015. Considering EV sales are not doubling this year in US, that would seem to indicate that eMotorWerks' market share is growing as well.
"After a successful Kickstarter campaign for an open-source $99 electric vehicle (EV) charging station kit, eMotorWerks began volume shipments in October 2013, entering into the market at a time when competing products were retailing for $1,000 or more. eMotorWerks rapidly turned the industry upside down by producing reliable and affordable home charging solutions that delivered more power at a fraction of the cost."
Currently, eMotorWerks offers a whole family of models.
Base JuiceBox Classic 30 7.2kWunit with 20-foot charging cable costs $449.
eMotorWerks founder Valery Miftakhov said:
"We saw the market potential for an advanced, reliable, and cost-effective charging solution that makes it possible for every EV owner to have their own level 2 charging station. With our JuiceBox product line, eMotorWerks is helping make EV ownership more affordable, spurring even more significant adoption."
"Our JuiceBox stations are extremely popular among electric vehicle owners," continued Miftakhov, validated by the positive reviews and praise written by customers who have ordered their JuiceBox online, and by the continual emails and calls the company receives noting JuiceBox's flexibility, convenience, and the unfettered ability to charge at the full rate the auto manufacturer intended. "With faster charge times you get on the road more quickly and our connected solutions allow you to schedule charging at times of reduced electricity rates, saving you money."
Now, the big topic for eMotorWerks is smart charging and providing utilities with tools for power demand management.
"With end-user permission, eMotorWerks can subtly shift when and how much electricity the vehicles draw from the grid, helping ease congestion on distribution grid circuits, absorbing excess solar and wind power, and providing sub-second response for adverse events on the nation's electric grid."
