The design of the new ENGIE Eps EasyWallbox is signed by DazeTechnology.
Almost a year after the beginning of the collaboration between the most technological division of ENGIE and the startup from Bergamo, the new domestic charging solution for electric and plug-in hybrid cars, created exclusively for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, was presented on February 26.
EasyWallbox combines the design and all the functions of the DazeTechnology wallbox with the hybrid functionality between “mode 2” and “mode 3” introduced for the first time by ENGIE Eps for FCA. In mode 2 of charging, EasyWallbox, like a normal household appliance, is plug and play: this means that by connecting it to any electrical network via a standard schuko socket it is immediately functional by charging the car up to 2.2 kW. In addition, with the support of an electrician, it is possible to convert the charging in mode 3 and increase the charging power up to 7.4 kW in single-phase without the need to purchase another device. Furthermore, in the latter mode of charging, EasyWallbox is designed with the home load balancing system like in the DazeTechnology wallbox.
The wallbox will be standard equipment for the First Edition of Jeep Renegade 4xe and Compass 4xe and in the future it will also be available for other models of the Italian-American group, including the newly announced Fiat 500 Elettrica.
EasyWallbox is the first of a series of important e-mobility projects that DazeTechnology is carrying out with ENGIE Eps.
The realization of another project is ever closer and it is still the result of the partnership between FCA and ENGIE Eps, which the startup supports: the realization of the largest worldwide Vehicle to Grid project in the Mirafiori plant where an asset of electric cars will be able to “return” up to 25 MW of energy to the electrical system.
