Get Spiffy, Inc. (SpiffyⓇ), an on-demand car care, technology, and services company, today announced a partnership with SparkCharge to deliver on-demand electric vehicle charging.

The Roadie portable charging system by SparkChargeⓇ fights the problem of lack of EV charging infrastructure and gives people the freedom to charge where and when they want. The system is a Level 3 ultrafast charger, capable of delivering 1 mile every 60 seconds. That’s up to 8x faster than most wired chargers.

For some, this eliminates “range anxiety” standing in the way of buying an electric vehicle. For others, the Roadie offers a solution when the worst happens and you find yourself broken down on the side of the road.

That’s where Spiffy comes in. People can choose Spiffy on-demand charging in the BoostEV app by SparkCharge or directly in the Spiffy app.

“We are always looking for partners in our mission to disrupt the automotive industry. The SparkCharge team is addressing a huge barrier to EV adoption through modular portable charging, and we are thrilled to be on that journey with them,” said Spiffy CEO, Scot Wingo, “There’s a clear connection between our delivery of car care when and where you want it and the Roadie promise of EV charging where and when you need it.”

Electric vehicles are one of the megatrends driving automotive change in Wingo’s Vehicle 2.0 model, which also includes connectivity, autonomy, and changing ownership models. While EVs are the fastest moving piece of that puzzle, infrastructure limitations always stand in the way of meaningful progress.

“Removing the hurdles of owning and driving an electric vehicle is fundamental to SparkCharge. We want to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles on a global scale to create a cleaner, healthier, safer, and more sustainable world,” said SparkCharge CEO, Josh Aviv, “We are excited to welcome Spiffy into the BoostEV network and partner with them to deliver on-demand charging.”

Spiffy on-demand charging is now piloting in the Raleigh, Charlotte, and Atlanta metro areas. Download the app to learn more today.
