The company foresees first shipments of EVBox Liviqo in both socket and cable versions, from summer 2023 in the Benelux region, Scandinavia, Switzerland, and Ireland. Other versions, such as the socket shutter for France and the Eichrecht-certified version for Germany, will be available later in the year.

EVBox says the Liviqo will enable commercial spaces, hospitality businesses, and workplaces to join the electric mobility transition by easily starting and growing an EV charging offering. The AC charging station joins the next generation of the company’s products, the Livo and Troniq Modular, designed to accelerate the mobility transition by laying the foundations for a world where EVs are the new normal.

EVBox Liviqo delivers an intuitive charging experience for drivers while eliminating the hassle of day-to-day management and administration for businesses. The EVBox Everon charging management software allows businesses to manage and optimise operations by providing automated reimbursement, billing, and administration. Businesses can manage their charging offering remotely and receive advanced insights via the software. 

For drivers, the Liviqo provides an intuitive charging experience. It is Plug&Charge-ready, an emerging technology allowing drivers to start their charging session simply by plugging in their vehicle. Drivers also have a clear overview of their charging session thanks to an improved user interface, guiding LED lights, and a high-resolution screen. Thanks to these features, even new EV drivers will be able to navigate charging instinctively, minimising unnecessary contact for facility managers.

EVBox says the new charger allows businesses to start small and expand their EV charging offering as demand grows. Equipped with cluster load balancing, the Liviqo allows businesses to add up to 100 charging stations in one cluster and facilitates energy use and distribution in an efficient manner. The unit supports more businesses entering the market, by minimising the investment necessary to start and scale an EV charging offering.

EVBox says the Liviqo is the company’s most sustainable and durable commercial AC charging station yet. Built to withstand harsh weather conditions, from -30°C to +50°C , the charging station has undergone over 80,000 hours of climate controlled testing and has been accredited by labs including Dekra & NM. The charger’s housing is also made from the more sustainable, highly durable Makrolon RE, an alternative to conventional plastics.
