Study: Electric Vehicles to Account for 60-80% Car Sales by 2050, Gilbarco Expands Charging Platform to Meet Rising Demand


Electric vehicles will account for 60-80% of all global car sales by 2050, according to a new report. That includes battery, plug-in hybrid, and fuel cell electric vehicles.

For now, government regulation and funding are driving the demand for EV solutions, but in the not-too-distant future, forecourts will see see more and more customers looking for a charge instead of a fill-up.

Gilbarco’s growing e-Mobility portfolio is designed to offer solutions to a wide range of business types – from convenience stores to fleets.

Here’s a quick overview of Gilbarco’s growing EV charging platform, starting with our suite of Level 2 (L2) chargers.

The Amps2Go Series 6 L2 charger ideal for customers whose vehicles experience longer periods of downtime. Amps2Go’s rugged design, flexible configuration options, and one-year full replacement warranty all make it uniquely suited to power EVs in fleets, as well as help convenience store retailers offer additional charging options to EV drivers.

The Amps2Go F7 Series charger enables Level 2 charging in ways especially relevant for fleets operating private charging infrastructure. It employs the same rugged design and power output capability as the Amps2Go Series 6 and comes standard with two ports—a feature particularly important for fleet managers focused on maximizing space. 

Moving on to the DC Fast chargers, we have the Veefil RT-50. This 50 kW charger features the world’s smallest footprint and can charge a car to 80% in 20-40 minutes. For C-store operators, you have the choice between a stand-alone charger and a network charger. Read about the differences here.

The Veefil RT-175-S is in the same family as the RT-50, but more powerful. The 175 kW unit can charge an EV to 80% in 15 minutes. It’s also the first plug-and-share capable charger in North America.

Gilbarco also offers EV charging management solutions to keep up with usage, power consumption, and more with an easy-to-use interface.
