EV Safe Charge Named to Fast Company’s Next Big Things in Tech List
World’s First and Only Mobile EV Charging Robot with Advertising Included in List of Tech Breakthroughs That Promise to Transform the Future
Los Angeles, November 17, 2022 — EV Safe Charge, a leading provider and innovator of electric vehicle (EV) charging technology, today announced that it has been named to Fast Company’s second annual Next Big Things in Tech list. Honoring technology breakthroughs that promise to shape the future, the List recognized the transformative possibilities of ZiGGYTM, EV Safe Charge’s innovative EV charging robot. ZiGGY is the first and only mobile charger that aims to affordably and safely meet the EV charging needs of virtually any commercial parking lot – and offer a built-in communications and advertising platform to create a revenue stream for sites and maximize EV owner engagement.
In June, EV Safe Charge unveiled its ZiGGY demonstrator to highlight its potential to dramatically expand the reach of EV charging to virtually any parking facility shopping and entertainment center, hotel, fleet operator and multifamily housing owner, providing easy charging to every EV driver who enters the lot. In addition, it overcomes the limitations of stationary EV chargers without the need for costly electrical infrastructure. Plus, ZiGGY’s digital ad server can generate advertising revenue for the facility and display customized information to connect with EV owners and facility visitors.
As the founder of EV Safe Charge, Caradoc Ehrenhalt is a big believer in electric vehicles.
So much so that he started the downtown-based company to provide electric charging stations, first in residential and then in commercial buildings.
And now he is pivoting again and getting into mobile charging stations with Ziggy, a battery on wheels.
After all, one of the barriers to mass electric vehicle adoption is charging anxiety, or the worry that a vehicle would run out of power before reaching a charging station.
EV Safe Charge founder and CEO Caradoc Ehrenhalt introduces the robotics firm’s mobile solution to ‘charge anxiety’ on ‘The Claman Countdown.’
The vision of Ziggy, a mobile EV charger designed to tool around parking lots like a plug-wielding valet, raises an important question: Do robots take tips? Read more

Finding space for fixed EV chargers can be difficult, so one startup aims to make chargers mobile.
EV Safe Charge recently previewed a mobile charging robot called Ziggy that drivers will be able to summon using a smartphone app or their car’s infotainment system. The robot finds the car, plugs in, and then returns to a staging area to be recharged from the grid, a solar array, or energy storage batteries.
