EV-BOX | ELVI
Smart Charging solution for EV's worldwide
Within the growing market of Electric Vehicles, there is a demand for a smart and future-proof solution for at-home charging. Together with EV-Box, VanBerlo developed a vision on charging stations and designed a future-proof product that fits all current and prospective EV’s in all countries, that is as easy to use as possible.
Elvi can be used at home, in the garage or on the driveway. Next to the domestic world, it also belongs to the automotive world. The challenge was to create a product that fits logically in both worlds but also stands out as an ‘EV-Box’ product.
As a continuous technology & innovation industry player, EV-Box is now the largest producer and supplier of charging stations for electric vehicles and related cloud-based services worldwide.
Smart & easy to use
In different ways, Elvi is well designed and easy to use. In terms of production, the product build up is clever and considerably reduces assembly time. The packaging of the Elvi has also been designed to be user-friendly, guiding the purchaser through a natural step by step unpackaging process to create more clarity on how the device is installed. A separate helpful user manual is also included and is designed to be easily stored in an easy to find spot at home.
In terms of installation, the product is clever because it is split into 3 main parts, simplifying maintenance and logistics. A wall-mounted housing (this includes a kWH meter that can be read easily by the user), a separate front part which can be removed and returned in case of problems with the charger (a new front part can also be connected to the wall mount by the user to save time and money for both them and EV-Box). And, a separate car cable and connector. This allows the user to change the cable easily if needed.
