The electric car charger that goes to your car to charge it
The main “problem” of electric cars is that of recharging the battery when the owner is away from his habitual residence, and the company EV Safe Charge proposes a solution that can be practical on many occasions.
This company has presented a charging robot called ZIGGY, which approaches by itself the electric car that needs to recharge its battery. It is especially aimed to large car areas (garages, shopping centers, large offices, etc…), where an electric car does not have to look for a recharging place, but ZIGGY looks for it when it parks.
When the driver goes to the parking lot, he enters the ZIGGY APP and indicates that he wants to be charged, and the robot moves and reserves one of the parking spaces for him. And when the client arrives, he already has his location reserved, and he only has to proceed to charge his vehicle.

I loved the idea and it seems very practical, as it avoids the inconvenience of having certain places dedicated exclusively to charging electric cars. It also provides mobility that is very useful for many needs.
The company intends to start offering its product in 2023, and has not determined the costs or recharge prices. Depending on how they are, so will be their implementation possibilities.
But the idea is good and could also be used by local chains such as McDonald’s and the like, so that they can offer customers charging possibilities for their cars.
As I say, many good different possibilities open up, which they will have to take advantage of very quickly, since the competition never stands still.
I wish them the best, because their idea deserves it.
