Chargers for electric vehicles introduction in the OMV Serbia network
OMV Srbija and Charge & GO - partners in electromobility
OMV and Charge & GO have joined forces to improve the network and availability of chargers for electric vehicles in our country, so you can expect that electric chargers will become available at selected OMV gas stations in Serbia. Thanks to the cooperation between the two companies, highways in Serbia will also get more charging points, which will make travel easier for domestic EV owners, while drivers of electric cars in transit through Serbia will also have a place to recharge their vehicles while taking a break to rest and refresh.
“We believe the future of mobility means a diversified offer in our stations that should respond to changing needs of our customers. This offer should include electromobility and we entered a partnership with “Charge & GO” for installing chargers for electric vehicles in the OMV stations” says the Retail Manager in OMV Serbia, Nikola Bozalo.
With more chargers, the need for information about their location and availability is growing. In order for drivers to be able to access the chargers in the network, a digital platform and a Charge & GO application are available too. This platform facilitates the use of charging points for electric vehicles and drivers in Serbia are already using it, and it will soon be available to electric vehicle drivers in the region as well.
