In June, Auto Global announced that it has completed the launch of its EV SafeCare ＆mobile charging station＊ service utilizing LTO batteries for mobile charging vehicles. According to the company, the K-battery-based service was in the process of completing development, undergoing in-depth internal testing, and finalizing the development of LTO cell-based battery packs. An official said ※The EV SafeCare ＆go-to-mobile charging station＊ was developed by Innocean and realized by Auto Global. With the passage of the regulatory sandbox this summer, we will complete the development of LTO cell-based battery packs and launch the service in the second half of this year. Customers will be able to use the app to charge, wash, steam, and perform minor maintenance anywhere in the country.
EV SafeCare nationwide
Go-to mobile charging stations
Mobile charging services have been around for a long time, with apps but no actual services. Auto Global and Innocean’s new mobile charging station allows users to simply open the car’s charging port through the app, and a dispatch team will charge the car directly, while keeping a close eye on the charging process through the app. Auto Global developed the demonstration vehicle body, and Innocean is in charge of overall development, including applications. After preempting the domestic market, EV Safe Care’s ‘mobile charging station’ is expected to expand its services to fully utilize mobile electric vehicles in some underdeveloped regions such as Southeast Asia.
EV SafeCare is only developing LTO cell-based battery packs and has five patents in progress, including packing, vehicle structure, and design, and has completed discussions with a large domestic insurance company. An official said “If EV SafeCare becomes popular, it will alleviate concerns about fumes and noise from fossil fuel cars.” Auto Global CEO Myunghoon Chung said “The fact that we’re using secondary batteries, and that we’re doing everything from packing to building the vehicles without outsourcing, is very exciting. Even in places where charging is not easy, including roadside assistance, we have the unique ability to charge vehicles anywhere in the country by simply making a reservation in advance using the app. We look forward to your interest and support.”
