The leading supplier of global electric vehicle and energy management solutions, Wallbox, and the innovator of the most eco-friendly EVs and innovative mobility solutions, Fisker Inc., announced their global partnership for home charging solutions on Tuesday.
“Making home charging accessible is key to accelerating the transition to EVs globally, and partnering with Fisker will allow us to support more drivers as they make the transition,” said Douglas Alfaro, General Manager of Wallbox North America. “There is a natural alignment between our two brands, so we are excited to announce our partnership with Fisker.”
Green Car Reports reported Fisker’s statement in a press release that the two businesses will first sell Wallbox home chargers to owners of Fisker Ocean electric SUVs in the US, Canada, and Europe through the Fisker website.
According to Fisker, Wallbox will sell its Pulsar Plus charger to Fisker owners in North America and its Pulsar Max charger to Fisker owners in Europe. Additionally, Wallbox in Europe and COIL, a Wallbox-owned company in North America, will offer home installation services under the Fisker brand.
On November 17, 2022, the Fisker Ocean will begin production in a carbon-neutral facility in Graz, Austria. During that time, the company anticipates Wallbox chargers to be accessible to Fisker customers in the United States, Canada, and Europe. While pricing for all regions is yet to be revealed, the European launch will encompass Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden, and the UK.
Fisker asserts that two of the Ocean lineup’s versions have already been sold out, and it is presently seeking methods to increase production. The $37,499 basic price of the Ocean may allow extra money to be saved for installing a home charger. When arranging their setup, buyers should check whether they qualify for subsidies on home charging equipment.
Notably, Fisker expects the Wallbox agreement will assist consumers in getting the most out of their electric vehicles, similar to other automakers who have attempted to arrange home charging for owners.
“Fisker is laser-focused on giving our customers simple and intuitive technology combined with clever design to make owning an EV easier. Together with Wallbox, we are providing class-leading, competitively priced chargers for Fisker owners,” Chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker said. “Wallbox’s track record of delivering well-designed, innovative, and dependable charging systems on a global scale makes the partnership a perfect fit for our customers and our business.”
