Primax and Shell have opened their first electric vehicle at a service station in Peru.

The rapid charger, located in the district of San Isidro, will be able to charge up to 80% of a battery in 30 minutes.

“We must play an active role in the transformation process that mobility is undergoing across the world. Electromobility is a milestone in the transport era,” said Carlos Gonzales, CEO of Primax Corporation.
