Charge electric vehicles easily with Bosch charging apps
Find charge spots across Europe and conveniently pay using the app
The Bosch charging network and app make electromobility user-friendly
Electric vehicles are becoming more attractive for OEM customers. Charging-station operators are improving the capacity utilization of their charging stations.
Simple charging in a public charging network
With the Bosch Software Innovations charging apps, you can conveniently find public, web-enabled charging stations. The app also makes paying for charging a transparent process.
Network of charging stations across Europe
The Bosch charging network is constantly expanding. At the moment, it has 20,000 charging points from 20 networks in 10 countries. We work closely with our customers to activate the charging solutions for individual countries.
Secure, cloud-based software solution
Choose Bosch to have a reliable partner with extensive software and vehicle expertise at your side. We help put you in the ideal position for future developments as well, such as integration into the vehicle.
Customer- and user-centered development
Charging apps by Bosch Software Innovations have market-leading functionality and are developed with a focus on user- friendliness. Their design adheres strictly to the brand and design specifications given by the OEM.
Charging at competitive prices
Charging apps enable tailored pricing models. Constant data exchange with charging-station operators allows for competitive prices for all involved. There are no minimum fees, and invoicing is based on usage.
Charging at guaranteed quality
The charging apps show whether or not the charging station is defective. If problems unexpectedly crop up during the charging process, our hotline is available 24/7.
Legal certainty in a regulated environment
The market for the operation of charging stations is regionally fragmented and heavily regulated. We conclude contracts with all market players, and assume the business and liability risks for our customers.
Various business models possible
We focus our activities on the brand world and user experience of our customers. That’s because every charging process is also a contact point between user and OEM. Bosch supports their business models as a neutral provider.

Looking ahead: integrating charging apps into the vehicle
Our charging apps have already put the charging infrastructure right on your smartphone. Now we are taking the next step and putting that infrastructure directly into the vehicle cockpit – with the same look and feel in both forms.
If you wish, you can use mySPIN to optimize the charging apps for use in the vehicle. Drivers can find, use, and pay for charging stations securely and conveniently from their electric vehicles – without having to take out their smartphone. We are also planning to incorporate the apps using Apple Car Play and Android Auto.
