Why Electric Vehicle?

By making electric vehicles a part of your life, you’ll help safeguard a sustainable, beautiful New Zealand for future generations and cut the cost of getting out and enjoying it. EVs offer you countless, long-term advantages.

Why Schneider Electric’s EVLink?

Schneider Electric’s EVLink range will let you travel with confidence. You’ll always be sure of your charge; you’ll know your family and property is protected by EVLink’s meticulous safety profile, and your vehicle will offer superior performance for longer.

Electric Vehicle charging – What you need to know

Electric vehicles (EVs) are on the rise in New Zealand and will become more common on our roads, thanks to their ability to help reduce carbon emissions. Whether you already have an EV, are planning to get one, or simply want to make your home future-ready, the EVLink Wallbox from PDL by Schneider Electric is a must-have.

Weatherproof and robust, the EVLink Wallbox can be installed outside or in your garage and lets you charge an electric vehicle faster, more reliably and with greater safety than with a domestic socket outlet.
