Zaptec, the Norwegian green tech company that specialises in smart electric vehicle (EV) charging systems have partnered with software company Monta to launch a European payment solution. This will help to accelerate the accessibility of electric vehicle charge points across Europe.
The partnership is among the first of its kind where a hardware manufacturer teams up with a software provider to deliver charge points to electric vehicle drivers, businesses and housing unions. The product solution, named Zaptec Park, will be a step toward making electric vehicle charging as seamless as possible.
Peter Bardenfleth-Hansen, Zaptec CEO, said: “By having our future-proof quality hardware powered by Monta, a company solely focused on EV charging software, Zaptec owners can now gain full control over access, usage, pricing, payment and availability to their charge points.
“Plus, access to features such as virtual queueing, and charge point reservation. Zaptec Park is a complete game changer and will remove many of the barriers EV drivers face today.”
Sweden will be the first to experience Zaptec Park, followed by several European countries in 2022. Zaptec recently demonstrated their charging technology in the UK at the hugely successful EV LIVE event which took place 7/8 May at Blenheim Palace.
Casper Rasmussen, Monta CEO, said: “Zaptec is one of the industry’s leading brands regarding quality and safety. We’re very excited to partner with a company that, like us, wants to create a better world by creating a more sustainable and electrical future.
By combining Zaptec’s beautifully crafted yet reliable charge points with our feature-filled software, we’re determined to provide a better charging experience. This will help meet the skyrocketing demand for electric vehicles all over Europe.”
