Sofiane Belkhodja, CTO of Driveco:
“For over ten years, we have been working tirelessly to design a simple, accessible and reliable charging experience to make EV charging possible throughout Europe. Our development has significantly accelerated in recent years, and as part of our rapid roll-out, we have identified key players who make our network accessible to all. Our partnership with Hubject is a major milestone in this quest, allowing us to give international visibility to the Driveco charging station network, so that all drivers in Europe can charge seamlessly their electric vehicles.”
Christian Hahn, CEO of Hubject:
“The intercharge network has been the prime facilitator for interoperability across Europe since 2012. Our partnerships enables all EV drivers to seamlessly access charging where they need it, no matter which eMobility service provider they hold a contract with. Driveco’s efforts to design a simple, accessible and reliable charging experience aligns with our goals for a global, interconnected charging network on the basis of eRoaming, and we are glad to have found such an engaged partner in France, one of our core markets.“
An ambitious partnership to democratize and simplify access to electric charging
In 2030, 25% of the car fleet will be electric, compared to only 3% today. The development of electric mobility is subject to the rapid deployment of reliable charging infrastructure, and Driveco aims to deploy more than 60,000 charging points in Europe by 2030.
The main challenge of carbon-free mobility is to provide a sufficient number of charging stations, accessible to as many people as possible. To do this, Driveco chose Hubject to facilitate the location of cross-border charging stations.
Hubject offers charging station operators, such as Driveco, a technological solution that makes electric charging accessible throughout Europe. Hubject allows Driveco to be more visible on European mobility applications, to find reliable information, and to facilitate the payment of recharges anywhere in France and Europe.
Driveco, the first French player to adopt Hubject’s global offer
In addition to making Driveco stations compatible with hundreds of mobility operators, Hubject will allow electric vehicle drivers to benefit from the simplicity of “Plug & Charge”, a system by which charging is done without having to use an RFID badge or payment card. Driveco is the first French player to announce this partnership by choosing Hubject’s global offer.
By integrating Hubject’s comprehensive offer, Driveco opts for innovative charging technology, making it one of the most ambitious and innovative players in the charging industry. Together, the two actors in electric mobility are making tangible contributions to facilitating access to charging stations thus making mobility more sustainable.
