Urgently has partnered with SparkCharge to add on-demand EV charging to the services offered by its roadside and mobility assistance programs.
The partnership combines SparkCharge’s Roadie, a portable, modular fast charging system, with Urgently’s Smart Mobility Assistance platform.
“Mobile EV charging is among the innovative and vital services Urgently has identified to support our partners’ EV strategies and enhance the ownership experience for their customers,” said Chris Spanos, CEO and co-founder of Urgently. “Partnering with SparkCharge, we can provide EV owners an enhanced sense of security that they will not be stranded without access to reliable on-demand charging assistance.”
Urgently sees on-demand EV charging as an essential element of smart mobility assistance. The partnership with SparkCharge will support its network of roadside service professionals, many of whom are eager to expand their capabilities for servicing EVs.
“We anticipate EV assistance calls will become a significant percentage of our business in the years ahead, so it’s imperative that our service capabilities keep pace,” said R. Blair Gentry, President of Blair’s Towing & Recovery, in Northern Virginia, and a member of Urgently’s service provider network. “We are excited to work with Urgently and SparkCharge to expand our service capabilities for our EV customers.”
