Blink Expands EV Charging Infrastructure Across Latin America

The company has plans to expand its charging solutions in Brazil, Argentina and Peru.

Blink Charging Co, a global manufacturer, owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment and services, is expanding its footprint in Latin America (LATAM) to further grow the EV charging market in the region. Latin America experienced a 57% surge in EV charger sales during the first quarter of 2023 compared to the figures at the close of 2022, Blink said.

Since its entry into the Latin American market in 2020, Blink has established its presence, having sold or deployed more than 2,100 EV chargers across eight countries. The company said it attributes its success to its wide range of product offerings, encompassing Level 2 chargers tailored to different plug types commonly found throughout LATAM. Notable products include the IQ 200 charger, the residential HQ 200 charger compatible with the type 1 J1772 (American) plug, and the EQ 200 charger for the type 2 (European) connector. As the EV fleet industry’s growth in the region expands, Blink also offers the MQ 200 charger and a variety of DC Fast Chargers (DCFC) to meet diverse charging needs. Within the next few months, Blink also plans to launch DCFC, commercial and residential Level 2 chargers equipped with GB/T plugs effectively addressing the escalating demand for Chinese-manufactured EVs in the region.

“To prepare for and embrace an electrified future in Latin America, our efforts throughout the region – focused on developing and offering the most advanced EV charging technologies – are immense,” said Juan C. Barahona, US and global director of operations for Blink Charging. “Blink is also closely monitoring the evolving needs of the region guaranteeing our continued provision of products and services essential to support the distinct EV implementation goals in each individual country.”

Blink’s commitment to driving the advancement of transportation electrification in Latin America has been particularly strong in Mexico and Central America, the company said. EV chargers have been sold or deployed in a range of LATAM countries including Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Costa Rica, Panama, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Turks and Caicos Islands, Aruba, Colombia, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay. The company said it also has plans to expand into Brazil, Argentina and Peru. Blink said it recognizes the importance of education and knowledge collaboration as the initial step toward promoting widespread EV adoption.
