Andersen EV unveils special-edition fascia to celebrate charge point launch

A special-edition fascia has been unveiled by Andersen EV at a launch event for its all-new, compact A3.

A designer charge point sits on the outside wall of a house.

The A3, a designer EV charge point, features a wide range of new colour and finish options as well as a host of technological advances that will further simplify charging at home in a design-led package.

The front of the new A3 is 20% smaller than the A2, and, as with the A2, the cable of the all-new A3 can be completely hidden away within the unit when not in use.

The launch is being celebrated with a special-edition fascia produced by leading luxury automotive design house CALLUM Design, which is led by renowned British automotive designer and former Design Director at Jaguar Land Rover, Ian Callum CBE. The special-edition fascia is characterised by textured wood featuring patterns that play with the signature CALLUM tartan and marks the start of a new partnership between the two design-led brands.

Technological advances

The A3 includes an advanced solar feature that enables the user to redistribute solar energy generation to power their charging session. An updated version of the A2’s user interface includes a more intuitive LED status indication, a presence sensor, a convenience light located on the underside of the unit, and theatre lighting activated when lifting the lid to highlight the cable location.

The A3 will sit at a lower price point than the Andersen A2 which will remain in the product range. EV drivers can select the A3 unit to charge at 7kW with a 5.5m cable, while the existing A2 will charge at up to 22kW and can be specified with a cable up to 8.5m in length. To coincide with the launch, Andersen EV has expanded its colour range for both units to over 240 options.

Functional and beautiful

Andersen EV unveiled the new addition to its product line during a launch event at the London Design Museum, where Ian Callum and David Martell, Andersen EV’s CEO, showcased the product and its CALLUM Designs fascia.

“The new A3 offers something entirely new in the domestic charge point sector, thanks to its compact proportions, premium-grade minimalist aesthetics and advanced technologies,” explains David Martell, CEO of Andersen EV. “We’ve launched the new charge point following the success of the A2 unit in the UK and to continue to show that technology can be complemented with outstanding design.

“It’s been a great experience to work with CALLUM Designs on the launch of the new ‘Andersen by CALLUM’ fascia, and our shared ethos of design-led luxury will see us bring further innovative collaborations to market.”

Ian Callum CBE, Director of Design at CALLUM Designs, adds: “As a design-led, British brand, CALLUM has a natural alignment with Andersen EV. We share the value that a functional product can also be beautiful and meaningful to the owner. The team has enjoyed creating the first of our bespoke fascias and looks forward to seeing them on the homes of Andersen EV customers.”
