Brands now have the opportunity to reach both roadside broadcast audiences, and JOLT’s desirable EV driving audience, who have dwell times of up to 30 minutes at JOLT charging stations, while also engaging via the JOLT app where brands can communicate one on one with the EV driver.

“We’re deploying our digital out-of-home and charger network at pace, witnessed by our 250% increase in new users. We will continue to invest in New Zealand, as we are in other major global cities, including Sydney, Melbourne, London, Vancouver, and Toronto to name a few.
