Charging the electric car at home
Can you imagine charging your electric car at home, while you sleep; at your company, during working hours, or even when enjoying a meal at your favorite restaurant? We went to peek into that door of the future at a company from Braga called Volt-e, which in 2018 revolutionized the market with innovative charging solutions for electric vehicles. Today it operates in markets like Spain, Switzerland, Ireland, Germany, Kuwait, and Dubai and has already shaken up the national market with exclusive products, allowing flexibility, efficiency, and speed, at the forefront of a demanding and competitive market, where novelties come at the pace of thought. Because in this journey towards the future, innovation follows at cruising speed, with no stops along the way…
The path to innovation
Júnior Braga began to give shape to this dream three years ago, when he replaced the fleet of his father’s textile company, José Braga, with 100% electric vehicles. However, with this adaptation comes an important gap: charging. It was necessary to create solutions that would allow autonomy in the face of the scarce charging offers, until then little prepared to meet the needs of companies with fully electric fleets.
The fact that they are vehicles with completely distinctive characteristics made Júnior Braga realize the importance of developing products adapted to the characteristics of each vehicle and to the needs of its user. The biggest premise of all? To ensure that the vehicles had the best possible performance while revolutionizing the automotive world by reducing the number of fossil fuel-powered cars and minimizing environmental impact. The die was cast, and Volte was beginning to materialize…
The Volt-e as we know it today
And that’s how Volt-e assumed itself, from its inception, as a company fully specialized in the supply of any type of chargers intended for electric mobility. Along with the idea of creating his own brand of chargers, Júnior Braga simultaneously launched a TVDE company with 100% electric vehicles.
Reducing the ecological footprint is no longer an option, but increasingly a civic duty, which Junior embraced with conviction, with a clear mission: to make more people follow his example, making electric mobility a reality within everyone’s reach!
Personalization is really the watchword. Volt-e’s vision is to adapt the charging solution to the needs of each user, considering features such as the power and model of each vehicle, whether in a domestic, company, public network charging, integrating the MOBI.E network, or even portable charging.
With more than a dozen employees, in areas ranging from software and product development, evaluation, maintenance, installation and commercial area, at Volt-e there is above all advice, training and proximity in each of the various stages. It’s not unusual to see, for example, a client getting to know and even trying out one of the assorted products and solutions. This is Volt-e’s main essence: to be an open window to knowledge in this area, clearing up eventual doubts and demystifying concepts.
Among the different solutions we find options, from AC (alternating current) and DC (direct current and therefore faster) charging, from 2 kW up to 120 kW.
An exclusive product of the company, unique in the national market, and without a doubt one of the bestsellers, is the Volt-E portable charger, an economical and fast-charging solution for all electric vehicles with CHAdeMO and CCS. With a compact and portable design, it can be installed easily, at low cost, and transported for use in different situations with minimal effort. Depending on the electric vehicle model, the charger can charge up to 80% in less than 30 minutes, available in three models 30, 45 and 60 kW and with adjustable power from 3.7 kW.
Another differentiating product is, without a doubt, the 60 kw Station, with simultaneous DC and AC charging, designed to be installed in public and restricted access environments, ideal or example for companies, service stations, Taxi/Uber fleet operators, parking lots, among others.
The solutions are countless, with faster charging options, for places where the permanence time is short, such as a shopping center park, or situations where charging can happen more slowly, such as office parks, residences, condominiums, among others.
Volt-e’s recent past and all the conquests achieved are built daily with an eye on what’s to come, in a continuous work of Júnior Braga and his team that can’t hide their pride in seeing all their studies on electric mobility materialized in a company that today is assumed as a major player in the sector.
It is from Braga, with pride, which makes the world its home and the future its time, for an electric mobility increasingly real, possible, and accessible to all.
