Blink Charging Co., an electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment manufacturer, signed an agreement to become the preferred supplier of EV charging products and services for affiliated AAA service providers, which include 19 AAA clubs and affiliates at over 60,000 locations nationwide. The program will offer streamlined ordering processes, preferred pricing options, and upgraded EV tools for roadside assistance providers.“AAA is proud to have been serving members for over 120 years. During this time, road service has remained the main reason for membership growth. Today, EVs play a pivotal role in the changing automotive industry, and AAA is thrilled to welcome Blink as a preferred supplier providing roadside EV solutions to our members,” says Cliff Ruud, AAA Automotive Managing Director.
To ensure AAA members have convenient access to EV charging services, Blink has also installed onsite chargers at numerous AAA branch offices and AAA-owned repair facilities and auto repair shops. AAA was also an early adopter of Blink’s first-generation Mobile Charger, which allowed for roadside charging in select cities.
“As EVs become increasingly commonplace, there is a growing demand for charging services along with roadside assistance. Teaming up with AAA presents a great solution, and Blink is excited to offer AAA’s EV members the same level of exceptional service and reliability that AAA has been synonymous with for over a century,” states Blink’s Chief Revenue Officer Michael Battaglia.
