 This collaboration marks a significant step forward in expanding fast charging capabilities in both rural and urban areas, addressing demand for electric mobility solutions. Under the umbrella of SMEG’s EVzen initiative, EVBox has been entrusted to supply 300 EVBox Troniq Modular fast charging stations. The primary objective of this agreement is to enhance the accessibility of fast charging options, catering to the needs of EV drivers in various regions of France and Monaco. The partnership between EVBox and SMEG dates back to 2019, when they initially collaborated to deploy EVBox BusinessLine charging stations for commercial purposes in Monaco. SMEG then began rolling out its own EVzen fast charging network in the south of France in 2021 using EVBox devices.

 The latest phase of the collaboration involves the deployment of 300 EVBox Troniq Modular charging stations, with power ratings ranging from 120 to 180kW. These stations will be strategically installed across more than 100 commercial sites throughout France, augmenting SMEG’s existing EVzen network, which already boasts 150 fast charging ports. Anthony Dupont, Director for Electric Mobility at SMEG, expressed confidence in the partnership, emphasizing SMEG’s goal to provide an optimal charging experience for EV drivers. In addition to its core energy distribution and supply operations, SMEG has been actively involved in promoting renewable energy and digital energy efficiency solutions.

With a powerful focus on sustainability and innovation, SMEG continues to play a key role in driving the energy transition in Monaco and France. The EVzen network, led by SMEG, has been recognized for its contribution to the development of electric vehicle infrastructure and ranks among the top ten networks in France and Europe according to Chargemap. As the EV market continues to expand, partnerships like the one between EVBox and SMEG are essential for accelerating the adoption of electric mobility and building charging infrastructure.
