EV Charging Solutions for Dummies

Switching to electric can be daunting if one is not aware of the range of products and services that come along with driving an EV. To keep you informed, we’ve crafted this blog with a complete overview of all our charge points, products, and several services, describing the benefits that they provide.

Charge Points

Despite some differences in speeds, costs, and services from one charge point to another, there are 2 important things that all of our charge points have in common.

1. Design & Safety Our charge points are leaders in terms of safety and design standards. With cutting-edge technology, we are always concerned with ensuring the utmost safety and reliability standards to ensure that our products perform well and last a long time. By meeting IEC International Standards of Safety, we guarantee quality and consistency. In addition, charge points are backed by extensive warranty plans including an online connected back office ready to help you with any issues that may arise. Whether you are installing inside or outside, we stand behind the quality and reliability of our charge points.

Not only is safety important to us, but also design. Our charge points are sleek, durable, customizable in various colours, and demonstrate high quality aimed specifically at functionality and utility. Our design standards were set so high that we were proud to have won the Red Dot Design Award in 2016.

2. Smart & Convenient

When purchasing one of our charge points, not only do you get the highest standard of charge points, but you also enable a variety of smart services that make your charging as convenient as possible. For example, via my.newmotion.com, you have a complete overview and insights into charging data, history, and behaviour. In addition, regarding billing, simply set up an account and we can provide automatic reimbursement for charging costs. The services that we offer with our charge points are almost as important as the technology behind our products and range within business and residential charge points.

Depending on your charging situation and location, we offer different types of services to cater to your needs.

Residential Charge Points For charging at home, we provide three different types of residential charge points. No matter your parking situation, in the garage or driveway, we provide everything you need to charge your car at the convenience of your own home in the fastest way possible.

Business Charge Points In our business line, we offer two charge points - Business Pro and Business Lite. When it comes to providing sustainable and future-proof charging infrastructure for business locations and car parks, we define industry standards. No matter what office location and type, we will cater to every type of vehicle so that employees and colleagues have a place to fill up during work hours. Along with our online portal, managing, optimizing, and tracking the usage of office charge points is as convenient as ever.
