From a small number of charging stations to a notable portfolio of over 450 public EV charging points, the company has continuously evolved while staying true to its core mission of advancing EV mobility and contributing to a cleaner future.

With GLIDA, customers can expect a transformed experience across various touchpoints. The newly unveiled brand image will be integrated into the website, emails, blog posts, advertising materials, video scripts, social media captions, printed materials, and other communication channels.
