Seongdong District Introduces Affordable EV Charging Stations


SEOUL, Feb. 25 (Korea Bizwire)Seoul’s Seongdong District announced Monday that it has introduced new charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs) which can be installed at one-seventh of the typical cost.

The new charging stations were set up at 64 parking spots in a local public parking lot on February 19.

The charging stations were installed by simply replacing normal concentric plugs with an Internet of Things (IoT)-based outlet, without the need to bury a separate electric cable, the district explained.

With this new charging station, there is no need for EVs to be parked in a designated parking space, but wherever the plugs are available.
