Wallbox enters the North American market
In 2020 Wallbox starts its expansion to the North American market, participating for the first time in CES, where the Spanish company exhibited its range of residential and commercial chargers. The first two products that will be available in North America are the residential chargers Pulsar Plus and the bidirectional charger Quasar.
Wallbox's CEO and co-founder Enric Asunción comments: "We are honored by the awards that our Quasar charger received at CES this year. We have been recognized by industry experts competing against the best and biggest players in the automotive sector worldwide. We see this as a strong signal that our commitment to sustainable electric mobility, and the development of products that will help us to become independent from fossil fuels, is right."
CTO and co-founder of the company, Eduard Castañeda, adds: "Both our chargers as well as the MyWallbox platform are carefully designed to make charging electric vehicles simple for consumers so that everyone can take full advantage of the possibilities that electric vehicles offer to people, businesses and cities. But with Quasar we go even further. Two-way charging will allow EV batteries to be used to power homes, offices and even return energy to the grid in times of high demand. Until the launch of Quasar, this possibility was more theoretical than practical, since two-way chargers have been very large and expensive."
