Enel X Way and Espacio Urbano inaugurate first rapid charger for electric cars in Puente Alto

Published on Thursday, 16 June 2022

  • By the end of this year, JuicePump fast charging stations will be installed in 14 shopping centers from Antofagasta to Punta Arenas.
  • This partnership seeks to promote the use of electromobility throughout the country, increasing the coverage of electric chargers from the north to the south of Chile.


Santiago, 16 June 2022 - Enel X Way is working with the Espacio Urbano shopping center chain to install 14 fast charging points in its malls throughout Chile. Customers can already make use of a JuicePump charging point at Espacio Urbano Puente Alto+, the first to be installed in this district.

This project expands the coverage of fast charging stations in Santiago and the Metropolitan Region, reaching sectors where today there are no fast/charging stations such as Melipilla, Colina, San Miguel and Maipú. To decentralize access to this technology, fast charging stations will be installed in Antofagasta, Rancagua, Viña del Mar, Linares and Punta Arenas.

"Through this partnership with Espacio Urbano we want to consolidate our company's value proposition of improving quality of life in our environment and in the communities in the areas where we operate, providing products and services that meet our customers’ needs," said Jaime Solá, Operations Manager of Espacio Urbano Chile.

Enel X Way will install a 60 kW, multi-standard, JuicePump that is compatible with electric vehicles currently in the market and will have the capacity to charge two cars simultaneously. This high-speed, powerful technology is an essential last-mile solution for drivers of electric taxis and electric cars.

"Enel X Way has a single focus in Chile: to accelerate the transition to more sustainable transport. Through partnerships such as the one we are forming with Espacio Urbano, we are making progress in promoting electromobility, in achieving greater coverage of this technology and making it more convenient to access for users throughout the country," said Jean Paul Zalaquett, general manager of Enel X Way Chile.

The free-to-download JuicePass application makes it is easy to interact with and pay using the smart charging platform and gives users total control of the charging experience. This model of 60kw charger can give a battery charge of 20% to 80% in 30 minutes or less depending on the car.
