Electric vehicles (EVs), such as electric automobiles and plug-in hybrids, are charged using equipment called EV chargers. They are a vital part of the infrastructure needed to facilitate the widespread use of electric vehicles. It is usually the slowest choice to charge a device with this charger, which plugs into a regular 120-volt wall socket.
It’s appropriate for overnight charging at home but not the best for daytime rapid top-ups. Since they emit no tailpipe emissions when driven by renewable energy sources like wind or solar, EVs are thought to be more ecologically benign than conventional gasoline-powered automobiles.
The Global EV Charger Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
One of the biggest public fast charging networks for electric vehicles (EVs), EVgo Inc, has announced the launch of an Alexa-enabled EV charging experience with Amazon. Alexa can be asked to direct users to nearby EV charging stations.
This feature is available to users of Alexa-enabled cars as well as automotive accessories like Echo Auto. Drivers can easily access PlugShare’s extensive public EV charging repository to find stations nearby by utilising PlugShare, the world’s largest EV community and a member of the EVgo family.
For Alexa-enabled EVs such the Nissan ARIYA, Ford Mustang Mach-E, and F-150 Lightning, the integration with the PlugShare API enables a seamless charging experience.
Customers may simply identify and drive to the closest charging station, whether on a weekend road trip or during regular errands in the neighbourhood. Without having to physically stop and look for stations, Alexa delivers a list of available public charging stations in the area, along with real-time availability by plug type and charging speed, arrival time, and distance. Long before a motorist pulls into a station, the consumer experience starts.
The user experience is improved by enabling voice-initiated, hands-free navigation to charging stations, which gives EV drivers on the go confidence. This partnership with EVgo to make the process of finding an EV charging station using Alexa is the most recent illustration of how speech and multi-modal experiences can make life more easy.
