EVE Sideview

In order for electric vehicles to function effectively in the market, the concept of a connected car must be embraced and all devices must be smart and connected. We will also see the merger of Transport, Energy and ITC.  This can't happen organically, it must be designed.  There needs to be a core system in place that can manage the communications between all of the role players in this industry. GridCars has developed vehicles for this Eco Systems, support infrastructure and a software system, called the Energy and Mobility Services Platform (MSP).  Together these products and services will become core pillars in the Economy of Electric Vehicles and will usher in the era of truly connected and intelligent vehicles.  What does GridCars do:

-          data and vehicle Telemetry (vehicle tracking, EV data, charging, energy, etc.);

-          solar generated energy and charge point consumption;

-          charge point information such as bookings, availability and maintenance;
