ACU introduces EV chargers


As part of a new programme aimed at promoting sustainable and electric mobility, the Automóvil Club del Uruguay (ACU) inaugurated two electric vehicle charging points at its Central Service Station in Montevideo and at its station in Maldonado.

Thanks to the cooperation agreement between ACU and the innovative energy products and solutions company ENEL X, two chargers of the "JuiceBox Pro 32" wall box type were installed.

These chargers are compatible with all vehicles approved on the market.

ACU, which is member of the Electric Mobility Board, continues to take steps to promote environmentally friendly transport.

As part of its strategy, it has launched the ECO Challenge programme, teaching students from Uruguayan high schools and technical schools how to develop an electric vehicle. 

Based on the outstanding results in terms of economy and environment, ACU, which already incorporates an electric service unit, plans to add others in the future.
