ABB e-mobility has acquired Swedish fintech startup Vourity, which provides technology designed to enable seamless payment options for EV charging.
Vourity’s technology “enables rapid, secure payment for EV charging, using a wide variety of payment options including credit cards, mobile pay and RFID tags.” The cloud-based solution can be operated through a pay station or directly integrated into a charging station.
“What impressed us most about Vourity’s technology is how simple and easy it is to use and that’s what we aspire to in our systems, so it’s a perfect strategic fit for ABB e-mobility,” said Daniel Alarcon-Rubio, Chief Digital Officer at ABB e-mobility. “The addition of both the people and the technology from Vourity will strongly enhance and accelerate the development of our own systems.”
“Our aim with Vourity has always been to deliver a seamless customer experience at the point of payment,” said Hans Nottehed, co-founder and CEO of Vourity. “As we evolve from the start-up phase into full commercialization, we are confident that as part of ABB e-mobility we will be able to ramp up our ability to deliver that experience at scale while continuing to develop and improve our technology.”
