Why did we create Charge Pod?

Charge Pod enables our patrols to help stranded EV drivers at the roadside with a power boost, equivalent to a top-up from a fuel can for a petrol or diesel car

Range anxiety

%

of consumers see range anxiety as a barrier to switching to EVs

The UK alone records approximately 827,000 cases of breakdown because the driver ran out of fuel each year

Global EV market

The global electric vehicle market was valued at $162.34 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $802.81 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 22.6%. Vehicle manufactures are releasing more EV models in preparation for the 2030 ICE ban. However, 58% of consumers see range anxiety as a barrier to switching to EVs. Original ADS and the RAC wanted to help people make this switch, so we created an innovative solution to range anxiety.

No jerrycan solution

The fact there is no jerrycan solution for EVs is particularly alarming if we consider the current statistics of internal combustion engine drivers breaking down due to lack of fuel. On average, the UK alone records approximately 827,000 cases of breakdowns because the driver had run out of fuel each year. Omitted from these statistics are people who may have called on friends, family or colleagues to provide a jerrycan of fuel and been topped up from the roadside that way. This means that in reality, this statistic is far higher. It also demonstrates that no matter how many electric vehicle charging stations there are, people are always going to run out charge. So, as the use of EVs is increasing it is imperative that a quick and simple solution is readily available.

Original ADS have addressed this problem by creating the Charge Pod system.
