California-based EV Safe Charge has launched Ziggy, a mobile charging robot designed to make it easier to charge electric vehicles in parking lots, malls, hotels, and fleet operators and property owners. Ziggy is called up via a mobile app or on-board infotainment system, reserves a parking space and charges the electric car as soon as it is parked. The charging robot can be powered by the mains or battery.
Ziggy can also generate advertising revenue through displays and customer information. The startup says they already have sites where Ziggy can charge cars, including the Holiday Inn Express in Redwood City, California, Opera Plaza in San Francisco, and The William Vale, a luxury hotel in Brooklyn's Williamsburg borough.
Caradoc Ehrenhalt, founder and CEO of EV Safe Charge Inc. and the inventor of ZiGGY, says: “ZiGGY is a flexible and simple solution for virtually any office, mall or residential complex that helps meet the growing needs of tenants and guests for charging without spending a lot of time and money. requires investments in infrastructure and installation - if at all possible. In many cases, especially in older buildings, the installation of electric vehicle chargers is still not possible,” he said.
