The auto-world celebrates its first World EV day on September 9th, 2020, dedicated to promoting Electric Vehicles (EV) and more sustainable transport systems. Korean startup EVAR (Electric Vehicle Automatic Recharging) is one of the companies supporting the EV sphere by making essential EV charging infrastructure.
Environment-friendly charging system
According to an estimate, by 2030, over 37 million EVs will be sold globally. However, the current infrastructure for charging the EVs is not sufficient. EVAR is the first in the world to develop an electric vehicle self-driving charging robot and a passive mobile charging cart. Evar’s mobile EV Automatic Charging Infrastructure promises to provide a more convenient environment for using eco-friendly vehicles by innovatively replacing the existing EV charging infrastructure.
Evar has been part of the Samsung C.LAB program, a known Corporate Startup Incubation Program in Korea, under the aegis of Samsung Electronics. The company’s founders have been part of the Samsung Electronics workforce with a collective experience in engineering, designing, and marketing.
Vision & Future
The company’s vision is “Innovating EV charging infrastructure and contributing to eco-friendly.” Currently, EVAR produces two types of mobile EV charger (EVAR Auto and EVAR cart).EVAR cart can charge EV with a fast charging mode (up to 40kw) and a normal charging mode (7kw, 14kw). In 2018 EVAR got the No. 1 Award in the Samsung CLAB contest, and in 2019 it was selected as the central company of Jeju Special Zone for Regulatory Freedom. The startup is looking forward to getting global success and aspires to work with international EV producing companies.
EVAR is participating in the third edition of the “TIPS X beSUCCESS Korean startup showcase” to be held online on September 23-24, 2020.
