The rise of the electric vehicle means the need for vehicle charging stations that are sustainable in design, which the Peugeot Design Lab's 'Driveco Parsol' makes a top priority.

Created using sustainable materials, the 'Driveco Parsol' is covered with 88 photovoltaic panels that soak up solar energy and utilize it for the station below or transfer it to other stations that need it in the region. This helps to ensure the vehicle charging station and others within the region are never out of use because of inclement weather or overcasting.

The 'Driveco Parsol' is capable of charing up to seven vehicles at a time including electric vehicles, ebikes and/or scooters.

Conceptual at present, the Peugeot Design Lab 'Driveco Parsol' has been commissioned for implementation at Bastia, France and could help to revolutionize the design of charging stations.
