- With ParkElectric, users can rent a parking space and charging point by the month for their own exclusive use in the Saba and Saba Barcelona Bamsa car park network, including 160 kWh per month for charging their electric vehicles. This is enough to travel about 1,000 km per month (1).
- Endesa X, Saba and Bamsa are taking another step in encouraging the use of electric vehicles. People who do not have a private charging point (at their home, office, etc.) will now find it easier to join the electric mobility movement. These days, more than 65% of homes do not have garages in which charging points can be installed.
- The service will be available in all Saba and Bamsa car parks with existing public access chargers thanks to the agreement reached by the companies in 2019. There are now 58 car parks available throughout Spain with 235 electrified parking spaces for public use.
Endesa X, Saba and Saba Barcelona Bamsa have strengthened the agreement on electric mobility that they signed at the beginning of 2019. Together, they have launched ParkElectric, the first product on the market for electric vehicle owners who do not have the possibility of installing a private charger at home for their electric vehicle.
With ParkElectric, users can rent a parking space and charging equipment by the month for their exclusive use in the Saba and Bamsa car park network, including 160 kWh per month for charging their electric cars. This amount of electricity is enough for an electric vehicle to travel an average of 1,000 km per month (1).
This scheme provides a response to an unmet need in the market, since, at present, 65% of homes in Spain do not have garages in which a charging point can be installed. ParkElectric adds to the range of services for paying customers, who will have a parking space and a charging point for their exclusive use, with no lock-in provision.
The service is now available in the entire network of Saba and Bamsa car parks where there are already public access chargers, based on the agreement reached by the companies in 2019. Up-to-date information is available at www.endesax.com and at www.saba.es or through the Saba app. As of today, 135 charging stations (235 parking spaces) are available and operational in 58 car parks in 25 cities in Spain (A Coruña, Alicante, Barcelona, Madrid, Marbella, and Pamplona, among others). Endesa X, Saba and Bamsa are still working to expand the number of public parking places in car parks with charging facilities for electric vehicles.
The technology installed is 7.4 kW and these are 24-hour access car parks, so subscribers will be able to charge overnight or during their working day and have their batteries fully charged in four hours.
How does ParkElectric work?
Subscribers interested in ParkElectric can find out more by visiting www.endesax.com and completing the form, by visiting www.saba.es or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once registered, users can use the Endesa X app, JuicePass (available on iOS and Android for free) or a exclusive-use contactless card to start charging. The app now functions for the Saba and Bamsa network as a result of the deployment of mobile coverage in their car parks in recent years.
Access to the JuicePass network
As well as enjoying an exclusive charging point, users of ParkElectric also benefit from the additional advantages of the Endesa X charging application. On it they can monitor their vehicle charges in real time, track consumption and the kWh used from their monthly package. And of course, they also have access to the rest of the public access charging network that Endesa X is deploying in Spain whenever they are on the road and need to charge. The app shows all the chargers available on a map, the best route for reaching the chosen charging point, and allows users to reserve it, start and stop the charge and even pay with a bank card, without having to register in the application.
