Access to Public Charging Infrastructure for eCar Drivers in Europe Further Simplified
The publicly accessible charging network available to MSP customers of has·to·be grows by 20,000 additional charging points through the connection to the Dutch eMobility solution provider EVBox. In return, EVBox charge card holders will receive access to more than 8,000 has·to·be COMMUNITY charging points. Two strong European players are thus driving forward the connection of European charging infrastructure.

Interoperability is a Key Factor for a Positive Customer Experience
has·to·be and EVBox share the conviction that interoperability is essential for publicly accessible charging infrastructure in order to achieve high customer acceptance. has·to·be will continue to work in the interest of its customers to ensure that charging in Europe is easy and customer-friendly as possible. In Central Europe, the importance of roaming is already widely understood. In other regions such as the UK and Eastern Europe, however, there is still a lot of convincing to be done to ensure that the issues of interoperability, easy charging and positive customer experience are closely linked.
