That’s enough for a charging rate of one mile per minute, which is plenty quick to soon send the dead EV on its way to the nearest charging station or the driver’s home charger. The Blink Mobile Charger is compatible with all-electric vehicles, including all Tesla models.
“This new mobile charger is tremendously innovative, and I’m excited for our Blink members and all EV drivers to experience its ability to help them when they need a charge the most,” said Michael D. Farkas, Founder and Executive Chairman of Blink. “Roadside assistance companies, insurance companies, auto manufacturers, and even credit card companies offer their members, customers, and cardholders roadside services. The Blink mobile EV charging station provides yet another valuable emergency service for its members and all EV drivers.”
It surely beats having to load the car onto a tow truck for a ride to a charging station. There is no word yet on pricing or availability.
