HeyCharge, a low cost EV charging provider, was named the winner from the Global Automotive and Mobility Challenge during the SAE International World Congress Experience ™ event.
“GAMIC x SAE WCX is a prestigious event that selects groundbreaking technology introductions, and we are honored,” said Chris Cardé, HeyCharge Founder and CEO.
“Our mission is to democratize EV charging. Most of the charging will happen in environments with zero connectivity. When there is connectivity, the door is open to cyber attacks. The disparity is further widened when installation is costly, and due to footprint constraints, a dedicated space for the disabled goes unresolved. For all these reasons, we are rooted in our commitment to rapidly deliver secured and easily accessible EV charging for all.”
HeyCharge’s suite of services are founded on four core tenants:
“HeyCharge's solution for low-cost, highly-scalable charging solutions at apartment buildings, offices, and hotels exemplifies the kind of technically-innovative, solution-driven mindset that GAMIC supports and showcases at the SAE WCX (SAE's signature annual event in Detroit, Michigan, USA) for visibility and connections to the global mobility audience and specifically to the North American Automotive Industry," said Vic Havele, Chair and Board Member of the Global Automotive & Mobility Innovation Challenge (GAMIC).
