Blink Provides 4,000+ Dealerships Globally with EV Charging

The company's business has expanded from the US to Europe, Latin America and the Asia Pacific region.

Blink Charging Co., a manufacturer, owner, operator and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, is now engaged with more than 4,000 automotive dealers in the US, Europe, Latin America and Asia Pacific for purchase, installation and ongoing management of EV charging equipment and services.

During the first quarter of 2023, Blink secured more than 600 agreements with dealers globally, and foresees further growth throughout 2023 as leading auto manufacturers unveil new models and experience increased sales. Since 2020, Blink has sold or deployed over 950 DC fast chargers along with more than 7,500 Level 2 (L2) chargers to address the needs dealers have in keeping vehicles charged and ready for customers, the company said.

“Dealers are the driving force behind the electrification of the auto industry and play a pivotal and dynamic role in driving forward the progress and acceptance of EV technology,” said Mike Battaglia, chief revenue officer for Blink Charging. “At Blink, we are dedicated to assisting dealers throughout the entire process of introducing EV charging into their businesses. From the initial stages of project inception to charger commissioning, and ongoing technical and customer support, Blink is trusted by OEMS and dealers as a reliable and valuable resource as they increasingly embrace electrification.”

On a global scale, the company said it has secured more than 100 agreements in the LATAM region. Additionally, Blink’s subsidiary in Belgium, Blue Corner, has established a comprehensive nationwide agreement with Toyota Belgium. In 2021, the Van Mossel Group, managing a network of 50 dealerships throughout Belgium, signed a three-year agreement with Blue Corner. The company also secured agreements with an Asian electric vehicle OEM in both the LATAM region and Belgium.

Blink said it works closely with each dealership to do an assessment of each proposed dealer site’s electrical requirements, preparing the site for the appropriate EV charging scope, including public-facing chargers, as well as providing dedicated service and maintenance support.
