With more than 13 years of bringing its technology to every corner of the United States, Blink Charging is expanding its presence in Latin America to become one of the key players in the growing electric vehicle charging market.
According to the company, the region experienced a remarkable 57% increase in sales of electrified car chargers during the first quarter of 2023, compared to figures at the close of 2022.
Since entering the Latin American market in 2020, Blink has firmly established a strong presence, selling or incorporating more than 2,100 EV chargers in eight countries.
The company’s success can be attributed to its broad and diverse range of state-of-the-art, easy-to-use product offerings, which include Level 2 chargers tailored to the different types of plugs commonly found in Latin America.
Product highlights include the IQ 200 charger, the HQ 200 residential charger compatible with the Type 1 J1772 plug (American) and the EQ 200 charger for the Type 2 connector (European).
As the growth of the electric vehicle fleet industry in the region soars, Blink also offers the MQ 200 charger and a variety of DC fast chargers (DCFC) to meet diverse charging needs.
Blink also plans to launch DCFC, commercial and residential Level 2 chargers equipped with GB/T plugs that effectively address the growing demand for Chinese-made electric vehicles in the region.
