The leading European developer and manufacturer of Internet of Things devices, Teltonika, is entering a new business niche – the company will soon start mass-production of its first smart electric vehicle (EV) charger – TeltoCharge.
NEW BUSINES UNIT – TELTONIKA ENERGY
Along with the launch of its TeltoCharge product, Teltonika EMS has formed a new business division – Teltonika Energy, which will focus on developing smart electrification hardware and software solutions.
Tadas Tumelis, Head of Teltonika Energy, on the need to deliver a focused effort towards enablement of energy infrastructure and global decarbonization initiatives – “By establishing Teltonika Energy division, we take responsibility to be an active contributor delivering tangible solutions to one of the world’s most urgent challenges – decarbonization. At Teltonika Energy, we strive to accelerate the transition to a greener future, powered by renewables and transformed by smart IoT technologies.”
WHY ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING?
Transportation is transforming to provide affordable, easy, and clean ways for people to get around. A global, unified effort is needed to increase viable, affordable, and zero-emission mobility; therefore, improving access to electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure is an essential step to achieving transportation decarbonization goals.
Lack of electric vehicle charging infrastructure and inability to reliably charge EVs inhibits many of us from purchasing or leasing EVs, thus impairing EV adoption and eventually our efforts towards decarbonization.
“Access to affordable EV charging at home is a significant determining factor for whether or not someone will purchase an electric vehicle. As such, deploying our sophisticated infrastructure and globally recognized expertise in the development and manufacturing of smart IoT devices to produce smart EV charging solutions is a logical step for Teltonika,” says Simas Rutkauskas, CEO of Teltonika EMS.
Innovative electric vehicle charging solutions are needed globally to enable EV adoption at scale, with more efficient and sustainable driving, effectively contributing towards the reduction of CO2 emissions worldwide.
“Just to put this fundamental shift into the perspective of numbers. It is estimated that by 2025, 20% of all new cars sold globally will be electric, and by 2030 this number will double, reaching 40%. Together with the growing adoption of electric vehicles, the demand for EV chargers will continue to rise, too.” – Jonas Palovis, Head of Operational Marketing at Teltonika Energy.
TeltoCharge – EASY, SMART AND RELIABLE EV CHARGER
Towards the end of 2021, Teltonika Energy will be launching its first “TeltoCharge” product line featuring premium quality, highly customizable, and easy-to-use EV charging solutions that will enable users worldwide to conveniently charge their EVs at home or any other shared-car parking. This will be an exceptional product combining premium looks, high-quality build, and smart EV charging features to save customers’ time and money.
TeltoCharge will feature fast EV charging capability (up to 22kW) and plenty of configuration options, ranging from 5 distinct color choices and front plate finishes to different connectivity types, including Wi-Fi / Bluetooth and GSM. In addition, the product will have a reliable and robust design that can withstand even the harshest weather, meaning that it can be safely installed both indoors and outdoors.
“Quick and easy installation without any extra steps, premium design and quality build, plenty of configuration options to choose from and smart EV charging features. We made it as simple and user-friendly as possible to deliver effortless EV charging experience,” says Povilas Mikalainis, CTO at Teltonika EMS.
TeltoCharge will come with a smartphone app allowing users to remotely monitor the status of their charger, schedule charging when the power is cheapest, view statistics in real time, lock their charger to protect it from unwanted users, and more.
PLANS FOR BUSINESS GROWTH
With TeltoCharge as the initial step, over the next couple of years, the company has plans to expand its product offering. Working with the partners across private and public sectors, Teltonika Energy will contribute towards improving access to EV charging infrastructure globally and enable mass EV adoption. Apart from TeltoCharge product line, company plans to introduce an extended range of specific EV charging solutions that will include destination charging and public sector use cases.
Teltonika has been operating in the Internet of Things business for more than 23 years now. The business started in a small dorm room and grew into a successful and profitable company group with 28 offices in 19 countries and more than 1700 employees worldwide. Idea generation, component supplier research, design, engineering, manufacturing, assembly, and quality control – the whole development process is in the hands of the company group. It allows Teltonika to offer affordable, reliable, and high-quality devices and solve various challenges in telematics, networking, micro-mobility, personal tracking, and other areas. Teltonika IoT Group aspires to become one of the global leaders in providing unique IoT solutions that make people’s lives easier and help those who need it the most.
