French car manufacturer PSA Group which boasts leading auto brands including Peugeot, Citroën, DS, Opel, and Vauxhall is investing heavily in various electrification projects to provide a seamless journey for its current and future customers driving electric. To realise these projects, PSA has selected ENGIE, and subsequently Dutch company EVBox, as one of the partners that will provide charging stations throughout Europe.
Since 2019, EVBox has equipped most of PSA’s European dealer network that covers over 26 countries. Native to the Netherlands, EVBox is one of the leading manufacturers of EV charging stations and charging management software. It was founded by Bram van Leur back in 2010 when the EV market was still in its infancy.
