Mercedes-Benz’s existing charging network is now seamlessly integrated with over 150 DC Fast Charging stations and 100+ Type 2 Chargers already operating on Evnnovator's eMSP platform. This integration results in a robust network of approximately 500 charging points accessible nationwide through the FICH app.
Evnnovator and CHARGE+ZONE, two of the fastest-growing eMSP and Charge Point Operating entities, have collaborated with Mercedes-Benz, to deliver an industry-first vertically integrated end-to-end charging solution.
This charging solution is tailored specifically for Mercedes-Benz customers. Mercedes-Benz has the largest luxury OEM backed charging infrastructure in the country, claims the press release.
Evnnovator's innovative eMSP platform offers FICH EV Charging App, empowering users to seamlessly locate, access, and pay for charging services offered by multiple Charge Point Operators (CPOs) through a single platform.
