Frequent questions


What you always wanted to know about electric mobility

Charging costs depend on the vehicle, essentially its size and autonomy. For a power customer who charges at night (making use of specially-designed low rates), the cost is around €1.65/100 km, compared to around €5.40/100 km using conventional fuel. In addition to this direct saving, it is important to factor in the reduction in maintenance costs and emission savings.

An electric car's autonomy depends on its size, the kind of battery used, driver habits, atmospheric conditions and the other electric equipment installed in the vehicle. Using today's lithium batteries, an average-sized pure-electric vehicle can travel around 150 km on a full battery.

Charging times depend on the size of the vehicle's battery. However, it usually takes between five and eight hours to charge a standard electric car up from zero.

When electric vehicles are charged, the sockets and cables are exposed to high currents for many hours. Existing infrastructure is often not prepared for such intense use and safe charging cannot therefore be assured. As a result, Viesgo develops new products designed to deliver a 100%-safe charging experience. Moreover, while these products are being installed, a qualified technician will check that your existing electrical wiring is ready to withstand the several hour-long charging process.

The EU is in the process of developing connector standards so that electric vehicles can be charged at any certified charging station. Viesgo develops its products with these upcoming standards in mind.

The Wave charging solution is designed to prevent water splashes or humidity from affecting how it works (by means of IP44 enclosures), fully eliminating any associated risk.

The public charging stations installed by Viesgo are equipped with mechanical protection mechanisms designed to impede unauthorised extraction of the charging cable.
