Blink Charging has inked a multi-year agreement with ElectroChile to bring EV stations to the South American country.

The deal comes months after the country took shipment of its first fleet of 100 electric buses.

The agreement between US-based Blink Charging and ElectroChile provides the structure for joint promotion and deployment of Level 2 EV charging equipment available.

“It is exciting to take this step with Blink, bringing the infrastructure required for mass adoption of electric vehicles in Chile,” said ElectroChile GM, Raimundo Aranguiz.

“We’ve seen impressive efforts by our government to abate pollution through the availability and encouragement of electric vehicles, taxis, public buses and even electric scooters.”

Chilean Energy Minister, Sussana Jimenez has publicly encouraged the adoption of electric vehicles, saying the country would like to have 40% of its private fleet and 100% of public fleets electrified by 2050.

With few publicly available EV charging stations, this is the first step in encouraging the use of electric vehicles in Chile.

Blink currently has deployed more than 15,000 charging stations in the US and plans to work with ElectroChile to install them across Chile.
