Volt-e bets on a more accessible electric mobility at LusoMotores
Volt-e, a Braga-based company that is revolutionizing the electric car charging market in Portugal, has just launched a home charger for installation in private spaces with integration to the Mobi-e network and load balancing at LusoMotores, having already made available to the market the most diverse charging solutions in low and high-power DC charging for companies, fleets, and the public network.
Having come about by chance, it was nonetheless not by chance that Volt-e continued in the electric mobility market to take the lead in it in the knowledge that, if the future is to be electric, its mission is to create the right solutions.
Born in Braga, in 2018, with the dual mission of minimizing the environmental impact and ensure better performance and autonomy of electric vehicles, Volt-e assumes itself today as a major player in the sector, seeking to stand out for the quality and diversity of products, adapted to the characteristics of each vehicle and the needs of its user, currently reaching countries like Spain, Switzerland, Ireland, Germany, Kuwait and Dubai, always with the mission to understand the needs of those who buy an electric vehicle, whether for personal or professional use, and find the right answer, on a continuous path towards innovation. 100% electric fleet and new challenges
Júnior Braga, mentor, and CEO of the company, began to give shape to this dream three years ago, by replacing the fleet of his father’s textile company, José Braga, with 100% electric vehicles. However, with this adaptation came an important gap: charging. It was necessary to create solutions that would allow autonomy in the face of the scarce charging offers, which until then were not very 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 the needs of the user. The mission was to ensure that the vehicles had the best possible performance while revolutionizing the automotive world by decreasing the number of fossil fuel-powered cars and minimizing environmental impact. The die was cast, and Volt-e was beginning to materialize.
A line of proprietary chargers
It was in this way that Volt-e assumed itself, since its genesis, as a company directed towards the supply of any type of chargers 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.
Customization: the key
Volt-e’s vision is to adapt the charging solution to the needs of each user, considering characteristics such as the power and model of each vehicle, whether it is domestic charging, company charging, charging on the public network, 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 ambition: to be an open window to knowledge in this area, clearing up eventual doubts and demystifying concepts.
At LusoMotores VOLT-E presented the different solutions we found options, from charging in AC (alternating current) and DC (direct current and therefore faster), from 2 kW up to 120 kW.
The company’s exclusive product, unique in the national market and undoubtedly one of the bestsellers, is the Volt-E portable charger, an economical, fast-charging solution for all electric vehicles with CHAdeMO and CCS.
With a compact and portable design, it can be easily installed 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, for example, for companies, service stations, Taxi/Uber fleet operators, and parking lots, among others.
There are many solutions, with options for faster charging, for places where the permanence time is short, such as a shopping center parking lot, or situations where charging can happen more slowly, such as office parks, residences, condominiums, and others.
For more accessible mobility
Volt-e’s recent past and all the achievements are built daily with an eye on what’s to come, in a continuous work of Júnior Braga and his team that doesn’t hide their pride in seeing all their studies on electric mobility materialized in a company that today emerges as a major player in the sector, for an electric mobility increasingly real, possible, and accessible to all.
