About Revel

Revel's mission is to accelerate EV adoption in cities by providing the infrastructure and services that make it easy to go electric. Revel operates the nation's first all-electric rideshare service, which delivers thousands of rides across New York City every day. Revel is also the leading public fast charging provider in New York, with stations in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, and more on the way. Founded in Brooklyn in 2018, Revel first began as a shared electric moped platform and has since grown to be a top partner for big cities pursuing an electric vehicle future — first in New York, with other markets to come soon.
