Charging your EV at home is a central part of the experience for many drivers. But what if you want something small better?
Andersen EV may have the perfect option. The British manufacturer has created a line of high-end EV chargers aimed at the more discerning customer, and recently formed a new partnership with Jaguar Land Rover to bring its chargers to new EV drivers.
In this week’s Mobility Moments, we caught up with Rob Mouser, the company’s executive chairman, to learn more.
Can you explain the story behind Andersen?
Going electric is more than an ethical choice. It’s a choice to embrace the future. A solution to update your home and life with pioneering and intelligent technology. We don’t believe that someone who has made this choice should be forced to compromise on the design of an electric charger for the home, especially considering how electric vehicle design has evolved so rapidly over the past few years.
This is what inspired Andersen to produce products that look effortlessly stylish in the front of the EV driver’s home. We truly believe we have the most beautiful home wall charging boxes on the market.
How does deluxe charging compare to regular home charging?
Luxury loading means a few things.
First, the box must look beautiful.
Second, the installation service that customers receive must be seamless. For example, and unlike much of the industry, Andersen offers a complete customized service, from order to site survey, to installation of the wall box by a qualified and professional Andersen electrician. This ensures that the customer’s home charger is installed to the highest standards.
Third, the use of the box once installed is intelligent and easy for customers to use. The A2 is packed with smart technology. Through the Kønnect+ app, customers can control the energy between their home, EV and solar panels, as well as schedule charging and benefit from over-the-air software updates that ensure the charging experience improves over time.
What are the key features of your A2 home charger and Konnect+ app and what sets them apart from other chargers?
From modernist townhouses to charming seaside cottages, the Andersen A2 home charger can be customized to match each home’s unique style. Available in a choice of 96 different colors and finish combinations, including precision engineered metal or sustainably sourced Accoya wood.
Aesthetically, customers will also benefit from a unique hidden compartment, meaning the charging cable and plug cannot be seen when not in use. This is unique to every home charging point on the market.
Every Andersen charging point is made to order in our UK factory using the highest quality materials.
In addition, through the Kønnect+ app, customers can control the energy between their home, EV and solar panels, as well as schedule charging and benefit from over-the-air software updates that ensure the charging experience improves over time.
Why is it important for customers to have high-end home charging options?
We believe that anyone who has made the choice to go electric should not be forced to compromise on the design of an electric charger for the home, especially considering how electric vehicle design has evolved so rapidly over the past few years. years.
Why is JLR the right partner for you?
They are two world-renowned British brands that together share our passion for pioneering, intelligent technology that looks effortlessly stylish. Our Andersen A2 sets a new standard for home devices and charging installations that perfectly complement the dramatic beauty of Jaguar Land Rover vehicles.
How do you see the home charging market developing over the next ten years?
Technology will continue to develop at a significant pace. These technical developments will cover a number of areas; battery technology, charging speeds, energy storage, optimization of the energy network (grid) and more. In time, your car will communicate not only with your charging point, but also with your home and energy supplier.
