L-Charge Launches Mobile EV Charging Pilot in London

L-Charge is starting field trials of its mobile electric vehicle (EV) charging service in London from the beginning of September 2022.

L-Charge is a UK-based company that produces ultra-fast off-grid EV charging solutions.

The company’s mobile EV charging truck is fitted with a mini-power station that uses Liquefied natural gas (LNG) and hydrogen fuels to produce electricity onboard. This allows the vehicle to travel around the city and be called to a convenient location when needed via the L-Charge app.

The truck then provides ultra-fast charging for EV users, taking just 15–25 minutes to charge a vehicle from 0% to 80%.

An L-Charge test-drive participant said:

“What a great experience! The entire transaction is completed via the smartphone, with charging consumption confirmed via the driver and thereafter payment deducted from your account. The whole concept illustrates that mobile charging as a service is the next logical step. We need more options like this to make the use of EVs more convenient, and to accelerate clean vehicle adoption.”

The EV charge point manufacturer is now welcoming EV drivers with iPhones to join its beta-testing programme.

L-Charge has recently completed a road tour through Europe to measure the mobile charging demand in cities that have a lack of EV charging infrastructure.

As part of the tour, L-Charge tested their mobile charging service in Tallinn, Riga, Prague, Warsaw, Frankfurt and Amsterdam.

Whilst charging EVs, the company collected insights about the obstacles EV owners face, as previous survey results show that only 34% of EV owners are completely satisfied with the existing charging network.
