Current Motor designed a solar-powered garage that allows consumers to charge their electric vehicles in a sustainable manner. While electric vehicles are becoming more popular among consumers, the issue of charging remains somewhat problematic. Now there is a simple, emission-free way to power up your electric cargo bike at home.

The 'Mini-Fleet in a Box' is a new charging solution designed by Current Motor. The system is a solar-powered garage made out of an old shipping container. In addition to the solar panel array, the garage is also equipped with a battery storage feature. To use the system, consumers simply park their electric vehicles inside the garage and begin charging. The entire system is turnkey and self-contained, making it ideal for home use.
