EasyPark is OMV's new partner in electromobility
OMV continues to expand its network of electric rechargers at its filling stations in Serbia. The new partnership with EasyPark will further improve the network and the availability of rechargers for electric vehicles in our country, so that by the summer, fast DC rechargers will be available at selected OMV filling stations in Serbia.
Highways in Serbia will get even more filling stations equipped with top HYPERCHARGER DC chargers, which will facilitate travel for domestic owners of electric vehicles, and drivers in transit through Serbia will be able to recharge their vehicles while taking a break at OMV filling stations.
The time it takes to recharge an electric vehicle battery varies depending on the battery configuration and the technological compatibility of the vehicle with the charging solution, but the purpose of these chargers is certainly to enable electric vehicle drivers to return to the road as soon as possible.
"Through the new partnership, we are contributing to the development of the national recharging infrastructure, but we are also additionally enabling the transit of electric cars through Serbia. A diverse offer at our stations is a condition for modern mobility. This offer should respond to the changing needs of our customers and include electromobility, and with that purpose we have established another partnership with the international company EasyPark", says Decebal Sorin Tudor, CEO of OMV in Serbia.
With as many chargers as possible, consumers' need for information about their location and availability is growing. To make it easier for drivers to access the chargers, they have at their disposal a digital EVC CLOUD platform, EasyPark and Orion e-mobility mobile applications and numerous digital services that will be available to drivers.
