With more than 800 electric vehicle chargers already deployed in Mexico, Blink deepens its commitment to expanding charging solutions in the country and throughout Latin America.
Miami Beach, Fla. (Aug 16, 2023) – Blink Charging Co. (NASDAQ: BLNK) (“Blink” or the “Company”), a leading global manufacturer, owner, operator and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, today announced the enhanced accessibility and heightened visibility of Blink’s best-in-class EV charging products and services in Mexico. This achievement comes as a result of Blink’s newly launched website dedicated to the Mexican market. Notably, Mexico’s EV sales exhibited remarkable growth, particularly towards the latter part of 2021, with this trend gaining even more momentum in 2022. The upward trajectory is expected to continue in 2023, propelling Mexico to secure its position as one of the top three leading EV markets in the LATAM region.
The development and launch of the Blink Charging Mexico website marks a significant step forward in Blink’s pursuit of expanding its presence within the country, where Blink has successfully distributed over 800 chargers to date. Furthermore, this strategic move is poised to extend Blink products and services to a broader audience across Central and South America. The new website will include an innovative Whatsapp feature allowing Blink to connect with its current and prospective clients to attend to their EV interests and needs. This real-time connection will empower Blink to promptly address EV charging-related inquiries and requirements, fostering stronger client relationships.
“Blink is proud to showcase our new, user-friendly website tailored to deliver the best customer experience to both our present and prospective EV charging customers. This initiative aligns with our commitment to pioneering and advancing EV charging products within the country and around the world” said Jenifer Yokley, Sr. Vice President of Global Marketing for Blink Charging. “We are excited to see Blink expand its reach in Mexico, delivering our advanced line of charging solutions as EV adoption and sales continue to climb and drivers are in need of reliable information regarding EV charging solution information.”
The production of EVs in Mexico has witnessed a significant ramp up in the past year alone. Mexico has become a leader in EV production with output growing from 78,000 in 2022 to 148,000 halfway through 2023. The Mexican government has demonstrated a proactive stance and commitment to ensure that by 2030, 50% of all domestic cars sales are comprised of EVs. The infrastructure for EVs is growing to meet the needs of EV drivers across both the public and private sectors. This landscape positions Blink as an essential player in collaborating to grow infrastructure in the country. Thanks to its wide variety of EV technologies, Blink is poised to facilitate the widespread adoption of EV chargers throughout Mexico and the broader LATAM region.
Blink offers Level 2 chargers tailored for a variety of plug types available throughout Mexico, as well as the Caribbean, and Latin America.
