The days of the internal combustion engine as a commercial entity are coming to an end. Despite several false starts, the adoption of electric vehicles is accelerating faster by the day.

According to a recent McKinsey study, 350 new electric vehicle (EV) models will debut by 2025 and as many as 120 million EVs could be on the road by 2030 in the US, the European Union, and China.

While the technology of the car manufacturers is ready for the biggest technological transformation in recent history, the infrastructure still has some way to go. Driving an electric car is one thing, finding somewhere to charge it is another matter.

This sounds like this situation is begging for a cloud solution and it appears that one company has already thought of it.

Noodoe EV says it diverges from traditional charging stations by offering a set of features that help construction, retail, hospitality industries and public sectors transform their parking lots into smart EV charging locations that generate additional revenue.

In the US and Taiwan, the Sheraton, Hilton and Hyatt hotels, and public sector organizations such as Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, are Noodoe EV clients.

The real estate charging business is one part, the other is the cloud and the key differentiation of the Noodoe EV OS is a cloud operating system that serves as the ‘brain’ that orchestrates the operation of its charging stations.

It not only offers the charging service itself, but it also manages the service delivery of the EV charging stations that offer a simple charging experience for its customers and a range of advanced features for the site owners.

These include multiple types of payment transactions. Noodoe EV OS supports universal at-the-pump payment, so customers can use their preferred transaction method such as credit card, Apple Pay or Google Pay.

Moreover, Noodoe EV OS provides central management functions that enable administration staff to configure pricing, modify peak hours, and monitor status and empowers administrators to supervise the entire charging infrastructure.


The new SuperNEX electric motorbike is using the Noodoe charging platform.


Naturally, the story of a cloud solution to EV charging is not going to tell itself, so Noodoe announced its cloud sharing solution at last week’s Tokyo Motorcycle show when its partner, Taiwanese scooter manufacturer, KYMCO launched its SuperNEX electric sports bike.

While admitting that the SuperNEX is still some years short of commercial production, KYMCO Chairman Allen Ko also said they were using the Noodoe platform to test several potential battery solutions as well as accelerating the move to widespread EV adoption.

We are on a mission to make the world greener by accelerating the world’s transition to electric transportation and we do this with well-designed EV charging infrastructure solutions that help organizations be part of the revolution today.

While there’s nothing like a sexy motorcycle to draw attention, Noodoe EV OS is still interesting. The company says it is a ‘future-proof system’ and its cloud operating system can integrate additional features as new industry priorities or requirements arise.

As electric vehicles continue to proliferate on the road to dominance, beautiful motorcycles such as the SuperNEX will understandably attract headlines, but sometimes the story is elsewhere.

The cloud-based Noodoe EV OS, while not exactly a phrase that rolls off the tongue, could still prove to be a game changer when it comes to enticing drivers away from the dying combustion engine to the soon-to-be-ubiquitous electric car.
