Giving electric car owners a boost with a charging station location app.
Vector is committed to providing an Electric Vehicle (EV) charging network in the Greater Auckland area to support the uptake of electric vehicles in New Zealand. They engaged with Provoke to build an app that would promote the use of charging stations by making them easy and convenient for users to locate.
The app is the first of its kind to be developed in New Zealand and maps out Vector's EV charging stations nationwide, allowing drivers to side-step that dreaded 'range anxiety' feeling when taking their vehicles out for a spin.
Since the launch of the app about 6 months ago, there have been 718 downloads and 18,386 impressions. There’s been steady growth that is expected to continue with the growth of electric vehicle popularity. The EV Charging app supports Vector’s purpose as a business to reinvent the way New Zealand is powered and connected.

We built the app using Ionic Framework version 1 on top of a Cordova platform, customised for Android and iOS devices.
