It is a revolutionary charging station for electric cars which will appear in the course of 2024. The Lacroix factory plans to market a bidirectional charging station from the fall. The latter will allow you to use your car as a mini power plant.
Named “Mobilize powerbox”, this project is 100% French. It will be marketed with the future electric Renault R5. The first installations will take place at the beginning of May. A small revolution, as Vincent Bedouin, CEO of Lacroix Electronics, explains to West France :

With 70% of vehicles parked, we cannot “I can’t imagine millions of batteries that keep electricity stored without using it.”
€200 gain for users
Enough to allow users to save electricity and earn nearly €200 per year. “The electric R5 will be the first to have a bidirectional charging stationexplains Nicolas Schottey, director of the program. The driver who returns home in the evening at 7 p.m. (…) where electricity is the most expensive, will be able to discharge his electricity at home.”
He can also “schedule your battery recharge at the cheapest times. You will now buy a car, the installation of a terminal, a free Mobilize Powerbox application and a subscription to the electricity network supplier”.
