Paris, France – 3 October 2016: The New Motion, Europe’s largest charging solution provider for electric vehicles, announces today plans for a French expansion, kicking off at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. The company is proudly backed by French-owned Egis and offers cloud-connected smart charge points for those who drive electric vehicles in Europe.
“France is the largest electric vehicle market by volume in Europe with an ambition to have 2 million electric vehicles on the road by 2020, and we’re excited to be offering the best electric vehicle charging solution out there.” says Jean-Baptist Guntzberger, Country Manager for The New Motion in France. “Home of some of the largest and pioneering electric car manufacturers, such as Renault, France is an exciting place for The New Motion to introduce its smart charging solution that supports the electric vehicle revolution.”
__The New Motion will have a booth at the show as part of partner AVERE and can be found in hall 3 - allée A - stand 218.
The New Motion’s smart charge points are currently available for private and business customers across France. The company offers complete peace of mind to its customers with provision of the charge point, installation, monitoring interface and billing system. There is also a 24/7 customer service for drivers, available in 4 languages (French, English, Dutch and German)__
With 30,000 charge points throughout the continent and 75,000 charge card holders, The New Motion has created Europe’s largest public EV charging network. The network uses cloud-technology to provide users with access no matter where they are via the My New Motion App. The app allows private or corporate users to locate charge stations and manage all online billings and settlements. In addition, The New Motion introduces Dynamic Load Balancing, ensuring that charge points are always charging at the maximum speed without overloading the building supply or the electricity grid.
Jean-Baptist continues, “Moving into the French market allows us to develop as quickly as possible. Our smart technology allows customers to manage everything via an app on their phone -from locating charge points and powering-up their vehicle to managing costs of running an eco-friendly electric car.
“Eighty-five per cent of our users would recommend the service to their friends, family or co-workers, which tells us we’re doing something right. As electric vehicle use increases in Europe, The New Motion wants to be at the forefront of delivering electricity to this growing group of businesses and commuters who want to manage their travel more effectively.”
Alice Salembier, project director for eMobility at Egis states that “Egis is proud to be a shareholder of the New Motion, the clear leader for smart charging solutions at European level. It is an excellent partner for us, as we see growing demand for electric vehicles across France and The New Motion has the experience and expertise to deliver smart solutions to electric vehicle drivers and businesses. This is clearly an added-value to our connected services provisioned by our subsidiary Easytrip.”
The New Motion began life working with the first electric vehicle manufacturers such as Nissan, Opel and Toyota, providing charge points in the boot of every new electric vehicle. It has grown to become Europe’s largest charging network with a range of partners and well-known international clients such as IKEA Netherlands, KIA, Q-Park, APCOA (the largest automobile club in Germany) and AVA.
