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.

Strong positioning & increased visibility

Charging apps, which can be branded clearly with your company logo, strengthen the positioning and visibility of innovative businesses in the sphere of electromobility.

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.

Product concept that grows with your business

The charging apps are available in three configuration levels: quick entry with basic functionalities; expansion to incorporate light branding options; and individual solutions.

Carefree package from Bosch

Bosch Software Innovations is taking care of all aspects regarding the connection to charge point operators, customer handling via service hotline, hosting of the software and compliance with data protection laws etc.
