ANDERSON EV has become the only home charging company to provide an augmented reality (AR) tool that helps potential customers visualise how a charging unit might look attached to the exterior of their home or workplace.
It is launching the new AR tool as the first in a series of user-centric enhancements for its A2 unit in 2023. It helps the user envisage the appearance of the discreet Andersen A2 in different positions, tailoring the colour and finish of the unit’s exterior panel in 3D digital renders to best suit their taste and the specific location.
The A2 is available with one of the most extensive colour palettes of any EV charge point, with 96 colours and multiple finishes – including four durable natural wood options – to help the unit blend seamlessly with modern or period homes.
Customers can access the new interactive tool via the Anderson website: www.andersen-ev.com. Using the camera on a mobile device, the tool first ‘scans’ the area to ascertain the correct scale and then mounts the unit in the centre of the screen for the user to manipulate as they wish.
David Martell, CEO of Andersen EV, said: “We want to ensure our A2 unit complements each customers’ electric mobility goals and their home. Our products are built for longevity and incorporate future-proof technology, and our AR feature aids an important decision about this permanent fixture to one’s home.”
Andersen EV was acquired by EVIOS Plc in October 2022, and the company has since set out a new 12-month plan to accelerate the growth of the firm, investing at least £1.5 million in product development, refinements to the Konnect+ app and an enhanced customer service offering.
