Electric vehicle maker Fisker Inc. on Sept. 20 named electric vehicle and energy management solutions provider Wallbox its global partner for home EV charging solutions.
The Wallbox stations are designed to provide localized charging solutions to drivers at home. They provide a suite of energy management solutions including solar charging. Fisker EV owners will be able to purchase these home charging stations through its website as part of the partnership.
“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,” Fisker CEO Henrik Fisker said. “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 Wallbox Pulsar Plus charging station will be available in the North American market.
Fisker will also be the first original equipment manufacturer to offer the Pulsar Max charger in Europe. The chargers display customized logos from both companies and can be installed in homes, offices and multi-unit dwellings. Wallbox is also offering installation services in Europe and North America.
“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,” Douglas Alfaro, general manager of Wallbox North America, said. “There is a natural alignment between our two brands, so we are excited to announce our partnership with Fisker.”
