Two leading electric vehicle companies have announced their partnership to offer home EV charging solutions.
Fisker, which creates the world’s most sustainable electric vehicles and advanced mobility solutions, is joining hands with Wallbox, a leading provider of electric vehicle and energy management solutions worldwide. The global deal will facilitate Fisker owners to purchase Wallbox home EV chargers.
Douglas Alfaro, General Manager of Wallbox North America, said: “Making home charging accessible is key to accelerating the transition to EVs globally, and partnering with Fisker will allow us to support more drivers as they make the transition. There is a natural alignment between our two brands, so we are excited to announce our partnership with Fisker.”
The home EV chargers will be available to buy from Fisker’s website in the US, Canada, and European launch markets. The Pulser Plus, Wallbox’s best-selling charger worldwide and one of the smallest smart universal EV chargers, will be available to the North American market through Fisker.
In Europe, Fisker will be the first OEM to offer Wallbox’s Pulsar Max charger, providing localised charging solutions to drivers in seven European countries. Like the Pulsar Plus, Pulsar Max delivers top charging speeds and offers the full Wallbox energy management suite, including solar charging, so users can enjoy their EVs to the fullest.
Both chargers display customised Fisker and Wallbox logos and can be installed in homes, offices, and multi-unit dwellings to provide straightforward and efficient charging.
Henrik Fisker, the company’s chairman and CEO, said: “Fisker is laser-focused on giving our customers simple and intuitive technology combined with clever design to make owning an EV easier. Together with Wallbox, we are providing class-leading, competitively priced chargers for Fisker owners. Wallbox’s track record of delivering well-designed, innovative, and dependable charging systems on a global scale makes the partnership a perfect fit for our customers and our business.”
The partners also plan to offer home installation services provided by Wallbox in Europe. In the US and Canada, installation services will be provided by COIL, a recent Wallbox acquisition.
Wallbox Pulsar Plus smart chargers will be available to Fisker Ocean reservation holders in the US and Canada from November 2022. Wallbox Pulsar Max smart chargers will be available to its European market starting from the same month.
Pricing is to be announced.
