200 charging points for electric cars in Brazil

The Ecovagas project, which has already been used by Volvo, is developing, for Stellantis, a semi-public charging network for electric cars and plug-in hybrids. The company will be primarily responsible for making the 200 charging points available to future users of Stellantis electric cars.

Ecovagas is responsible for managing Estapar's largest semi-public network of charging points in the Northeast, South, Southeast and Federal District regions. The points installed are made up of Enel X technology and provide intelligent charging that supplies the electric car with 80% in about 3 hours, depending on the model.

This initiative is part of the automotive company's strategy to "electrify" the country, since the first step is to expand the charging infrastructure for plug-in hybrid electric cars.

According to the person responsible for Programs and Product Planning for South America at Stellantis, Breno Kamei, this partnership is part of several company initiatives to prepare a base for electric cars, even before they are sold.

Installation of Stellantis recharge systems will arrive in 2021

In view of the abundant growth of the ecosystem, it is estimated that charging points for electric cars and plug-in hybrids will be installed in the country later this year. The 200 Ecovagas mentioned above will only be for this first semester, with the possibility of installing other points later.

Ecovagas will be focused on airports, arenas, shopping malls, hospitals, commercial buildings and some teaching institutions. They will initially be installed in 23 cities in 10 states, such as São Paulo, Barueri, Belo Horizonte, Guarulhos, Rio de Janeiro, Curitiba, Recife, Aracaju, Brasília, Salvador, Fortaleza, Campinas. The charging points can be used by all electric cars with an American type 2 standard plug, which is also used in Brazil.
