EVBox is the leading global manufacturer of electric vehicle charging stations and charging management software. With over 125,000 charging points across more than 70 countries worldwide, we help electric drivers get access to charging infrastructure at any point in their journey.

Founded in 2010, we made our breakthrough when the market for electric vehicles (EVs) was still in its infancy. Our founders set their hearts and eyes on a clear concept: a fully modular charging station that facilitates easy installation, maintenance upgrades, and above all, uncompromising quality and durability.

Soon, we became the sole supplier of public charging infrastructure in cities such as Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Monaco. Meanwhile, we played an active role in promoting Smart Charging technologies and roaming of charging infrastructure with industry partners and public organizations.

In 2017, we were acquired by energy utility and global service provider ENGIE, who identified us as a disruptive, leading cleantech company making a difference in the fast-growing industry of electric mobility.

In 2018, we acquired the ultra-fast charging station manufacturer EVTronic, now EVBox Bordeaux, based in France, adding 1,000 previously installed fast charging stations to our European network.

Today, with many projects running across Europe, North America, South America, and Asia, we move forward by perfecting our original recipe with a next generation of hardware and software that are energy-efficient, future-proof, and easy to use.

The growth and success of EVBox are driven by the passion and dedication of everyone in the company.

EVbox has grown into an international team across multiple office and legal entities in Europe and the United States. Today, over 700 driven professionals coming from different walks of life are working for EVBox. As a fast-growing scale-up within the beating heart of the clean tech industry, with a mission to accelerate the transition towards a zero emissions future.
