Fisker and Wallbox, a leading global provider of electric vehicle and energy management solutions, have announced that they are to create a partnership so that they can offer Fisker owners Wallbox home EV chargers to buy through the Fisker website in the US and Canada, as well as some European launch markets.
Wallbox’s best-selling charger worldwide, the Pulsar Plus, is one of the smallest smart universal EV chargers currently available on the market and will be available in North America through Fisker.
Fisker will be the first OEM to offer Wallbox’s Pulsar Max charger in Europe, giving drivers in seven European countries localised charging solutions. Similar to Pulsar Plus, Pulsar Max delivers top charging speeds and offers users the full Wallbox energy management suite which includes solar charging, so that they can save money and get the most out of their EVs.
The chargers can be easily installed in private homes, offices or apartments for straightforward charging of electric vehicles.
Chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker commented:
“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. 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.”
Douglas Alfaro, General Manager of Wallbox North America added:
“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. There is a natural alignment between our two brands, so we are excited to announce our partnership with Fisker.”
Home installation services will also be offered in Europe by Wallbox, while in the US and Canada installation services will be provided by COIL, a recent Wallbox acquisition.
Beginning this November, Fisker Ocean reservation holders will be able to get Wallbox Pulsar Plus smart chargers installed in the US and Canada, while in the European launch markets, which include Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden and the UK, reservation holders will be able to get Wallbox Pulsar Max smart chargers installed for their new Fisker Ocean. Pricing is yet to be announced.
