Urban Fox, a partnership between Balfour Beatty Investments and Urban Electric Networks, has unveiled its UEone fully retractable EV charger.

Following more than seven years of development and a two-and a half-year trial, 18 new Mk5 UEone chargers have been installed by Urban Fox across nine locations in Dundee, on behalf of Dundee City Council.

The 7kW on-street charge point rises from the ground to an accessible height, and when not in use, auto-retracts flat and flush underground, leaving pavements clutter free and more accessible to pedestrians, when compared to other available EV charge points.

By downloading the Urban Fox App, members of the public can summon the UEone from the ground, power their EV and track their usage.

Oli Freeling-Wilkinson, CEO of Urban Fox, said, “After more than seven years of intensive development and testing, we are immensely proud to unveil Europe’s only flat and flush charging solution that complies with the highest accessibility standards.

“At Urban Fox we are passionate about addressing the pressing need for near-home EV charging infrastructure across the UK, to ensure that no one is left behind on the road to net zero.”

Dundee City Council Fair Work, Economic Growth & Infrastructure Convener, Councillor Steven Rome, said, ”I am pleased to see Dundee City Council invest in low-emission transport, further proving that we are continuously making progress towards achieving our net-zero targets.

“Dundee City Council believes that it is important to deploy charge points that are as accessible as possible to deliver equitable access to EV charging solutions, and this innovation helps cater to the needs of our communities.’’
