Electrify America has set a new standard for electric vehicle charging stations with the debut of its first indoor flagship station in San Francisco. Finally, someone has done it right – providing EV drivers with a charging experience that not only meets their needs but exceeds their expectations.
For too long, EV charging stations are just all wrong with them being in large open parking lots with no canopy or covering, no dedicated facilities such as a bathroom, and simply lacking all of the conveniences of today’s gas stations. Now, maybe EV charging stations can start to at least be developed around the typical gas station model with features that are more designed for those spending a bit more time at the station – to charge their vehicle. It seems Electrify America has the right idea and the model for others to follow in the near future.
Located conveniently in the bustling South Market neighborhood, this indoor charging station offers 20 hyper-fast chargers delivering up to 350 kW of power. But it’s not just about speed; it’s about comfort and convenience. While waiting for their vehicles to charge, customers can relax in dedicated temperature-controlled lounge areas, complete with food and beverage vending options. Complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi ensures that staying connected is never an issue, and the inclusion of restrooms with baby changing stations demonstrates a thoughtful approach to meeting the needs of all customers.
What sets this station apart is its focus on the customer experience. Electrify America has gone above and beyond to ensure that EV drivers feel welcomed and cared for during their charging sessions. With 24/7 access, round-the-clock monitoring, and security, drivers can charge their vehicles with peace of mind, knowing that their safety is a top priority.
This indoor flagship station represents a significant milestone in Electrify America’s mission to make EVs accessible to all, particularly in dense urban areas. By integrating customer feedback and insights into its design, the company has created a space that not only meets the functional requirements of a charging station but also enhances the overall experience for drivers.
As the demand for EV charging infrastructure continues to grow, Electrify America’s innovative approach sets the bar high for future developments. With plans to build similar flagship stations in metro areas nationwide, the company is paving the way for a more sustainable and enjoyable driving experience for EV owners everywhere.
