Ensto, Volvo and Lemminkäinen have started cooperation in EV charging solutions. Volvo is launching the V60 Plug-in Hybrid, a chargeable diesel hybrid car, in early 2013. In order to ensure safe and easy charging for the buyers of chargeable vehicles, a cooperation was formed where Ensto manufactures Volvo-branded charging units and Lemminkäinen is responsible for checking the electrical grid, installation, and maintenance of the charging units.
The Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid is the first chargeable diesel hybrid on the market. Its driving range on electricity only is approximately 50 km, sufficient for the driving needs of many drivers’ everyday life. When the vehicle is used on electricity only, it consumes no fuel and produces zero carbon dioxide emissions. Ensto has designed and manufactured Volvo-branded charging units, where usability, safety and charging speed have been optimized. Ensto Chago charging units have been designed to suit different user demands and challenging outdoor use, both at home and in public locales. The Ensto Chago family includes solutions for normal and fast charging
Volvo Health Check
Volvo Health Check service is offered to all buyers of Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid cars. In this service, Lemminkäinen checks the property’s electrical grid and its functionality, recommends the most appropriate charging method, and installs the Ensto Chago charging units needed. “Growing collaboration and the increase in expertise in the market encourages the popularity of electric traffic, and it is therefore of great importance to Ensto. Good availability of products, information, and services lowers the threshold for starting to use an electric car,” says Allan Ahlgren, the director for EV charging solutions at Ensto.
