Vestel Joins SMMT as it Continues to Drive Electric Vehicle Charging Market

Vestel has become a member of SMMT – The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders which represents more than 800 automotive companies in the UK

In the latest step on its roadmap to become one of Europe’s leading suppliers of affordable EV charging solutions, Vestel UK has joined SMMT – The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

Vestel has successfully launched a wide range of its own-brand EV charging solutions to the UK this year, including the residential and light commercial EVC04 charger and the commercial EVC10 dual-output model for businesses, as well as the soon-to-be launched EVC06 commercial urban fast DC charging station and small residential focused EVC01 ‘Mini’.

As the EV charger manufacturer behind some of the biggest brand names in Europe, the launch of Vestel’s own-brand products lowers the cost of ultra-reliable charging solutions for the growing UK market.

SMMT is one of the largest and most influential trade associations in the UK. Its resources, reputation, and unrivalled automotive data place it at the heart of the UK automotive industry.

Joining the prestigious SMMT will provide Vestel with a forum to voice its views on issues affecting the sector, helping to guide strategies and build positive relationships with Government and regulatory authorities.

Comments, Ali Khan, EV Business Development Manager: “Joining SMMT connects Vestel with hundreds of UK companies in the industry and supports the Society in its work publishing in-depth reports and analysis on the motor trade.

“We are very excited to partner with SMMT and look forward to working closely with the Society and its members to drive forward the electric vehicle charging market, creating not only a greener future, but a fairer future for generations to come.”

The Turkish manufacturing giant, best known for being the OEM partner behind 1 in every 3 TVs and display screens sold in Europe, has been designing, engineering, and producing EV charging solutions for household name brands for over five years. From small residential chargers to the largest commercial units, a broad range of charging devices already installed in homes, car parks and service stations across the UK are “Powered by Vestel”.

With the European EV charging market set to grow exponentially over the next decade, Vestel is leveraging its manufacturing economies of scale with its own brand charging solutions, set to significantly lower the cost of EVC installation. With the new products covering home users, commercial premises, and infrastructure hubs, Vestel’s capacity to produce over 700,000 EV chargers per year will underpin the move to become Europe’s leading supplier of affordable EV charging solutions.
