Welcome to GridCars

Powering South Africa’s eMobility Revolution

Driven by our passion to power the EV and eMobility industry in South Africa

About Us

Since our establishment in 2009, GridCars have become renowned as an independent authority on Electric Vehicle Charging Service Equipment (EVSE) and Charging Station Infrastructure and Management Systems. GridCars was also a founding member of the Electric Vehicle Industry Association. Today, almost a decade later, we continue to play a leading role in building the EV and eMobility industry in South Africa through engagement with vehicle manufacturers and various other stakeholders.

In September 2017 GridCars became part of JSE listed company Alviva Holdings Ltd, when it’s subsidiary, Solareff (Pty) Ltd, acquired a 75% stake in GridCars. The Solareff investment provides a significant boost to the GridCars balance sheet – providing the critical mass for us to scale up quickly and move far beyond what was possible as a small start-up enterprise.
