UNLIMITED CHARGING FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES: NOW A REALITY THANKS TO EVPASS, SWITZERLAND’S LARGEST PUBLIC CHARGING NETWORK

Until now, one of the main concerns for owners of electric vehicles has been the variety of tariffs at charging stations (per minute, kWh, etc.), which have on occasion left them perplexed. Now, evpass SA, Switzerland’s largest network of charging stations, is solving the problem by offering subscriptions that allow the user to make unlimited use of the network.

The company was inspired by similar subscriptions for mobile phones, internet services and television.

By offering fixed-price subscriptions that include unlimited top-ups, evpass makes life easier for users: no more calculations to optimise energy use, no more surprises about the total to be paid, and no more questions about the relationship between the KWh used and the distance travelled.

The evpass Anytime subscription, which costs CHF 120 per month and is invoiced annually, allows users to recharge their vehicles day or night at any public evpass terminal across Switzerland, of which there are currently more than 1,400. Around twenty new charging stations are added each week.

Day and night rates

For those who do not require a comprehensive subscription to cover regular use of an electric vehicle, evpass has created a subscription valid only during the day (evpass Day), and another valid at night (evpass Night).

With these subscriptions, for a flat fee of CHF 90 per month, customers can use the entire network between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m., and for CHF 50, the network can be used between 7 p.m. and 8 a.m. Outside these hours, each KWh is charged at CHF 0.45.

For all package deals, evpass is offering the first month free to new subscribers.

About evpass SA

evpass SA is aiming to create a Switzerland-wide network of carefully selected charging points along roads and within users’ communities, with easy-to-use charging stations, integrated cables and plugs adapted to all types of electric vehicle.

With more than 1,400 charging stations in over 20% of Switzerland’s communes, evpass is the country’s largest public charging network for electric vehicles. The company provides its customers with certified renewable, locally produced energy.

evpass was established in 2016 by Green Motion SA, a Swiss pioneer in charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. In 2018, FMV SA (Forces Motrices Valaisannes) and the Aargau energy distributor AEW Energie AG became shareholders in evpass SA.
