Electric vehicle charging network grows in Bulgaria – U.S. investment interest

“Electrify me” could be a brand, a logo or simply the latest trend in Bulgaria. From 2018, buying an electric vehicle in the Balkan country might become one the smartest investments for someone’s life. It will not be just an environmentally-friendly purchase but also one that will be dead easy to use as the electric vehicle charging stations will become many more across Bulgaria, along all major highways and key roads.

Due to an invaluable partnership between Bulgaria’s largest electric vehicle provider, eMobility International with Swiss ABB, the country’s charging infrastructure will extend its existing network, the stations of which can now be found on international routes “from Sofia to the Greek border, with installations in key locations including Sofia, Varna, Veliko Turnovo, Blagoevgrad, Sandanski, Rakov- ski, Stara Zagora, Liubumetz and Bourgas”, reads ABB’s announcement.

Plans include an expansion programme that will deliver results by the end of the first quarter of 2018.

“Terra 53 CJG – all in one electric vehicle charging solution, and ABB’s most popular installation – is compatible with all-electric vehicles on the Bulgarian market. Depending on the EV battery, charging times range between 15 and 60 minutes”, and its great asset is that it operates under rough climate conditions ranging from -35°C to 55°C.
