The Dutch electric vehicle charging solutions company EV-Box will now be entering the markets of the nearby countries of Belgium and Luxembourg, according to a recent email sent to EV Obsession.
The choice of Belgium and Luxembourg as the next two markets to enter was apparently down to the fact that electric vehicle (EV) adoption rates in the countries are pretty high currently — as well as the fact that charging infrastructure is still relatively undeveloped there, and the markets are near the Netherlands.
“A reliable and connected charging infrastructure is crucial to support the increased adoption of electric vehicles in Belgium and Luxembourg,” stated Stefan Meers, who has joined EV-Box as Country Director for Belgium and Luxembourg. “Sales of electric vehicles in Belgium have been growing steadily in 2015, having surpassed last year’s sales by 39%, placing the EV Share at 0.74% and YTD sales over 8,300 units. These numbers showcase a strong and positive evolution of the EV market, where the need for more knowledge and experience is extremely important and EV-Box wants to be a key player in educating the market.”

With the arrival of EV-Box in Belgium and Luxembourg, many will benefit from EV-Box’ smart technologies, such as load balancing, smart charging and peak shaving. These services are tried and tested and offer proof of EV-Box expertise in the EV industry, especially in the Netherlands where it has +60% market share including cities as Amsterdam & Rotterdam.
To support its strong presence in other European markets and the US, EV-Box has already opened offices in Amsterdam, Paris and Brooklyn/NYC. The production of the charging stations for the Benelux market happens near the Flemish and Dutch border, thereby contributing to Belgian employment opportunities in the automotive and manufacturing sector.
“We want EV-Box BeLux to be a thriving company, customer-centric, and a great place to work, while keeping the same culture, ambition, and enthusiasm we experience in our headquarters in the Netherlands,” stated Kristof Vereenooghe, EV-Box’s CEO. “Governments, Public Institutions, Businesses and the EV drivers themselves are working together to build a better EV ecosystem and EV-Box wants to be part of this sustainable mobility movement.”
