Smart Charging FAQ

  1. What are the technical specifications needed for home charging? The technical specifications for home charging installation will vary for each individual customer based on their desired home charging location and home information (i.e. year home was built, attached or detached garage, existing 240V line, etc).
  2. Where to I purchase the KEBA & Standard Installation Package? Customers should contact their Mercedes-Benz or smart dealership to purchase the KEBA & Standard Installation Package.
  3. What is the warranty on the KEBA Charging Station? The KEBA Charging Station comes with a two year limited warranty. Bosch provides a three year installation warranty.

Bosch CECs undergo extensive background checks, are fully licensed and insured, and participate in continuous training to provide industry-leading residential EV charging station installation services.  Additionally, Bosch CECs are local to you and thus highly familiar with local electrical codes as well as electric vehicle charging incentives.

If the standard installation package does not cover the whole installation, how can the customer pay for the additional amount that will be due? The customer is responsible to pay Bosch directly for any amount due over the standard installation.
