On July 6, the electric vehicle charging platform provider Charzin announced that they signed an eRoaming business agreement with Hubject, provider of the world’s largest electric vehicle eRoaming network, intercharge. As a result, Charzin’s EVZone card can be used not only domestically, but also in the overseas markets in Europe and the United States.
Hubject is also providing Plug&Charge (PnC) services to European electric vehicles sold in Korea. With Plug&Charge, drivers can plug their EVs into a charging station and charge up instantly using automatic car-to-station authentication technology that also facilitates the payment for them. This service enables an intuitive, secure, and automated EV charging experience.
Charzin’s vision is to offer its customers a sharing system on their platform in which private charging stations can be used by the public in exchange for rewards in digital tokens. Payments will utilise either an EVZONE card, cash, or these tokens. By collaborating with Hubject and joining the intercharge network, Charzin is widening the scope of its platform, and creating an international and seamless charging experience for their South Korean user base.
”The domestic and overseas electric vehicle charging market is changing very rapidly, which will be a year of focusing on making the right judgement. With the introduction of the EVZ token payment method, we expect to bring major changes to both the electric vehicle market and the blockchain market,” says Mr Young-suk Choi, CEO of Charzin.
Christian Hahn, CEO of Hubject adds that, “at Hubject, we believe that the global adoption of emission free mobility relies on international services and technologies for EV charging. That’s why we developed Plug&Charge and intercharge, to bring this vision of the future to life. We are happy to start our activities in the Korean market by joining forces with Charzin, a strong partner, who also champions global accessibility of EV charging.”
