ECOtality, Inc. has announced the summer launch of Blink HQ, its new family of electric vehicle (EV) charging products for the home.
The Blink HQ suite of products is adding two new programmable Level 2 home chargers to consumers’ charging options; the first to launch is a 30-Amp home charger with delayed start options to optimize charging rates. This will be followed by the introduction of a new Level 2 charger with connected capabilities and remote access.
In tandem with the Blink Network, ECOtality said these new chargers will offer drivers unparalleled freedom and confidence to charge at home and on-the-go.
“Our premiere line of Blink HQ home charging products offer EV drivers exactly what they’ve been asking for: connection to the Blink Network, freedom to charge at home at their convenience and unprecedented value,” said Ravi Brar, CEO of ECOtality. “As EV sales continue their rapid growth, ECOtality is meeting the need for smart, programmable and affordable quick chargers in the home. We see a clear connection between charging at home, at work, while shopping or on the road during a trip. Having Blink HQ home charging products in EV drivers’ homes, bundled with a membership, will help support our growth and generate an annuity base as the number of EV drivers grows.”
To date, Blink has installed over 8,300 residential chargers in 38 states.
The first new Blink HQ model will launch in early summer 2013 and reservations are now being accepted.
Blink still offers its classic wall mount unit as part of the HQ family.
The Blink HQ family of products includes a one-year parts and labor warranty, as well as a free membership to the Blink Network and a $100 membership credit to be used at any of Blink Network’s over 4,000 publicly available charging stations.
Qualified drivers are eligible for a federal tax credit of up to $1,000 on the purchase and installation of a residential charging station through the end of 2013.
The Blink HQ chargers will be available through leading online retailers this summer.
