ZiGGY, an autonomous robot that can charge your EV wherever you park!
ZiGGY can secure you a specific parking place, and then charge your EV, as any spot can now become a spot to recharge.
EV Safe Charge currently provides end-to-end charging solutions, particularly as it pertains to mobile charging.
The company created a mobile rental charging solution for the launch of Jaguar’s I-PACE EV and works with several other OEMs like Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Porsche, and Stellantis.
EV Safe Charge has invented its own mobile charging device in the form of a robot named ZiGGY!

ZiGGY was designed,
with the help of award-winning industrial design studio, Box Clever, who contributed the design of the robot’s exterior, and brand identity too. Caradoc Ehrenhalt, founder & CEO of EV Safe Charge Inc spoke to the EV robot’s purpose:
‘Strong EV sales and emissions reduction goals are creating a more sustainable future, but EV charging infrastructure isn’t keeping up. ZiGGY is a flexible and simple solution for virtually any office, mall or apartment complex to help meet growing charging needs of its tenants and guests without expensive, time-consuming infrastructure and installation investment.’
When in market,
the ZiGGY robot will be summoned to your EV using a mobile app or in-vehicle infotainment system. If you summon ahead of time, the robot will arrive at parking space and hold it for you, then plug-in for charging once you’ve safely parked.
Following an EV visit, ZiGGY will be able to return to its home base to recharge from the grid, battery storage, solar energy, or a combination of these sources..
EV Safe Charge plans to lease ZiGGY robots to customers under a Charging-as-a-Service (CaaS) business model, which will include ongoing technical support and maintenance.
ZiGGY will come equipped with two large screens that can serve as informational kiosks or interactive advertising, offering additional income options for parking facility operators.
While we don’t have the exact charge rates,
we were told that the ZiGGY robots will begin by charging at Level 2 speeds, EV Safe Charge told Electrek
