March 1, 2021
Come and be inspired by the best electric vehicle charging websites on the web.

Do you own a company that installs EV chargers for others?

Is your website not attracting the quality and quantity of customers you're hoping to get.

Or maybe you're a web designer that wants to feel inspired?

No worries, you're at the right place.

These EV Charging websites will inspire to you to take back to the drawing board for your own solar design. It is also critically analysed so you can see how it can be improved.

Each solar website template will need to answer very important questions from a potential customer within 2 seconds:

Do you provide what I need? Can I trust you?

How each solar website example will be judged:

If you see an EV charging website that should be included in this list, please let me know.

podPoint

podPoint

Great design points

  • Clear value proposition above the fold.
  • Custom icons and images.
  • Great social proof showing amount of energy charged.
  • Answers customers questions with clear headings and images.
  • Having an app increases the chance of conversion and adds credibility. (Apps are expensive to build)

Areas for improvement

  • Does not address why podPoint is better than competition.
  • More whitespace between sections would reduce the feeling of being cramped.
  • Would've been great to see how the company or their chargers are different to their competition.
  • The design is too focused on their products as solutions but does not address what problems they are solving.

This website looks great on desktop and mobile.

They have listed all the brands they are compatible with, which is quite compelling.

However, there is no distinction between their products and their competitors.

podPoint

Tesla

Tesla

Great design points

  • Great video showcasing their superchargers.
  • Consistent branding and colour scheme.
  • Is able to show integration between car and charging network.
  • "Cheaper Than Gas" - They are not competing against other charging networks, but competing against Internal Combustion Engine cars.

Areas for improvement

  • The site is actually quite slow.
  • There are many videos and animations that need downloading.
  • The scrolling of the page is hijacked. Whilst this may seem "trendy", the user experience is quite poor.
  • No clear call to action until the very end.

Tesla knows that they are the leaders in EVs and charging, and so are leveraging their brand name.

They have opted out to show what normal websites would show, eg. Testimonials and other Social Proof.

Tesla's websites are usually created very well, but this page leaves a lot to be desired.

Tesla

EVUp

EVUp

Great design points

  • Consistent nice blue across the page
  • Design looks modern and consistent with latest trends
  • Great Video
  • Many call to actions on the page
  • Type is consistent with the "Happiness" branding

Areas for improvement

The website design has great branding elements which weave the type and the colours together quite nicely.

You can tell they put a lot of effort into making their chargers look appealing.

It would have been great to see some testimonials, case studies, or results that they have generated for their clients.

eVBox

eVBox

Great design points

  • Fantastic modern looking website.
  • Perfect above the fold imagery and styling.
  • Custom icons and images.
  • Great social proof showing quantity of chargers installed and impact.

Areas for improvement

  • Does not address customer pain points. Here's why.
  • There are better locations for FAQ's, and should not be located on the front page.
  • Would've been great to see how the company or their chargers are different to their competition.
  • "Flexible" is an ambiguous word. I don't know what it means.

This is the best Electric Vehicle charging website on this list.

It looks great and easy for the visitor to understand what their value proposition is.

The next step would be to showcase how EVBox can be "flexible" or different to their competition.

eFuel

eFuel

Great design points

  • Extremely clear what the value proposition is above the fold.
  • "Get Charging" is a great Call to action.
  • Consistent branding and colour scheme.
  • Having an app increases the chance of conversion and adds credibility. (Apps are expensive to build)
  • Design looks modern and consistent with latest trends

Areas for improvement

  • After the banner, the page talks about the benefits of EVs.
  • Does not address customer pain points. Here's why.
  • Shows features of an electric car, but not why their chargers are different
  • Charging cards doesn't appear consistent with the value proposition.
  • No Testimonials or social proof

Finding a template for EV Charging companies is difficult.

This is one of the few that stand out. Being a template, it is easy to design and write as anything.

So whilst the design looks clean and modern, I would not recommend following the copywriting on this page.
