Powering the electric future together.

Volta Charging next-gen station| Eye Candy

KISKA and Volta’s longterm partnership and next-generation charging station are leading the expansion of America’s EV charging landscape.

In 2018, KISKA became Volta Charging’s strategic partner. At that time, it was a promising Bay Area start-up with a novel USP: EV charging powered by ads. In brief, Volta’s EV charging stations double as digital advertising platforms. Placed in prime locations where drivers spend time and money, they let brands reach people while they use sustainable technology. Resonating with drivers, advertisers, and the site partners alike, Volta charging stations are powering America’s electric future.

Future tech. Upended business models. Brand design. Talk about a KISKA dream project.

Future forward. Distinctly Volta.

As strategic partner, KISKA has developed, streamlined, and professionalised Volta’s brand perception with product strategy and Product Experience Design. Across the entire range of Volta AC EV chargers.

The result is a distinctly “Volta” experience that resonates with drivers, advertisers, and the site partners that host the charging stations. To see the transformation, look no further than the next-gen product. Characterised by a slim, airfoil-like silhouette, it slickly combines architectural materials and automotive-inspired details. The 140-centimetre, high-resolution display dominates, and is now a Volta signature detail. Finally, emotive lighting animations clearly communicate real-time charging status; allowing users to confidently navigate the tech. 

“It’s easy to see where our money goes with KISKA. Their strategic design solutions translate directly into business success.”

Lighting isn’t the future of streetlights.

Streetlights are a universal feature of urban infrastructure. They also have a huge capacity to drive change.
