As we know, manufacturers who introduce electric cars on the market typically install charging points at dealerships.

Normally, those are AC Level 2 stations and sometimes higher power DC chargers.

Volkswagen recently selected IES Synergy as the supplier of 20 kW DC chargers for its European dealership network.

Interesting is that these are mobile KEYWATT TROLLEY chargers (probably good for servicing purposes).

Michel Orville, IES Synergy Vice-President, commented:

“We are really happy to have won Volkswagen Group’s trust in IES Synergy’s highly innovating technology. The choice of Europe’s largest vehicle manufacturer reveals that IES’ products match well the specific needs of automotive professionals.”

This makes sense. Fewer problems with the charger being ICEd. This seems to be a major problem at many (all?) dealerships.

CCS, I presume?

Portable, DC Fast Charger? Cool. 🙂

Installing them in dealerships is waste of money. On weekdays you charge at home. You go away for the weekend, want to come back home on Sunday evening but you can’t use the charger because the dealership is closed.

They are selling them, so they need to be able to charge up the demo cars.

They were charging up some Zoe’s in the Renault garage the other day.

Since they are a fraction of the cost of installing a petrol pump, it makes sense to have chargers in the garage.

Anynone knows a price tag ?
