Organization, Consolidation and Presentation of Financial Statements [Abstract]  
Car Charging Group Inc. (“CCGI”) was incorporated on October 3, 2006 under the laws of the State of Nevada as New Image Concepts, Inc. On November 20, 2009, New Image Concepts, Inc. changed its name to Car Charging Group, Inc.
Pursuant to its business plan, CCGI through its wholly owned subsidiaries, acquires and installs EV charging stations, and shares servicing fees received from customers that use the charging stations with the property owner(s), on a property by property basis. Additionally, CCGI through its wholly owned subsidiaries sells hardware to others and enters into individual arrangements for this purpose with various property owners, which may include municipalities, garage operators, hospitals, multi- family properties, shopping-malls and facility owner/operators.
Through September 30, 2014, CCGI and its wholly owned subsidiaries (the “Company” or “Car Charging”) has incurred an accumulated deficiency since inception of $60,944,253.   At September 30, 2014, the Company had a cash balance of $152,924.   The Company has incurred additional losses subsequent to September 30, 2014.  The Company implemented cost reduction measures in December 2014 to help reduce employee headcount, inventory and other operating expenditures.  At June 16, 2015, the Company had a cash balance of approximately $229,000.
On December 23, 2014, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Securities Purchase Agreement”) with certain investors (the “Purchasers”) for an aggregate of $6,000,000 (the “Aggregate Subscription Amount”). Pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement, the Company issued the following to the Purchasers: (i) 60,000 shares of Series C Preferred Stock convertible into 8,571,429 shares of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.001, (the “Common Stock”); and (ii) warrants (the “Warrants”) to purchase an aggregate of 8,571,429 shares of Common Stock (the “Warrant Shares”) for an exercise price of $1.00 per share.
The release of the Aggregate Subscription Amount to the Company is subject to the Company meeting certain milestones. On December 23, 2014, all the initial closing conditions were met so the Company received Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000) of the Aggregate Subscription Amount. The remaining Four Million Dollars ($4,000,000) was deposited into an escrow account. If the first set of milestones is achieved on or before March 31, 2015, the Company will receive Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000) from the escrow proceeds. The remaining Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000) will be released from escrow based on whether or not the second set of milestones is achieved on or before June 30, 2015.
If the milestones are not achieved on or before July 31, 2015 then the amounts remaining in escrow will be returned to the Purchasers, pro rata based upon the relative cash contributions. Although the milestones, as defined were not met, the investors released $4,000,000 as of June 15, 2015 in consideration of the formation of an Operations and Finance Committee (“OPFIN Committee”) to provide the Company with financial and operational direction, management and oversight with respect to the Company’s operating plan and fiscal year 2015 revised budget and to oversee progress.
The Company expects that through the next 12 months from the date of this filing, capital requirements to fund the Company’s growth and to cover its operating costs will consume all of the cash flows that it expects to generate from its operations as well as proceeds from the equity issuance noted above. The Company believes that during this period, while the Company is focusing on the growth and expansion of its business, the gross profit that it expects to generate from operations will not be sufficient to cover anticipated operating costs. Accordingly, the Company may require external funding to sustain operations and to follow through on the execution of its business plan. However, there can be no assurance that the Company’s plans will materialize and/or that the Company will be successful in funding estimated cash shortfalls through additional debt or equity capital and through the cash generated by the Company’s operations. Given these conditions, the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is contingent upon it being able to secure an adequate amount of debt or equity capital to enable it to meet its cash requirements. In addition, the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern must be considered in light of the problems, expenses and complications frequently encountered by entrants into established markets, the competitive environment in which the Company operates and the current capital raising environment.
Since inception, the Company’s operations have primarily been funded through proceeds from equity and debt financings. Although management believes that the Company has access to capital resources, there are currently no other commitments in place for new financing at this time, and there is no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain funds on commercially acceptable terms, if at all.
The Company intends to raise additional funds during the next twelve months. The additional capital raised would be used to fund the Company’s operations. The current level of cash and operating margins is insufficient to cover the existing fixed and variable obligations of the Company, so increased revenue performance and the addition of capital through issuances of securities are critical to the Company’s success. Should the Company not be able to raise additional debt or equity capital through a private placement or some other financing source, the Company would take one or more of the following actions to conserve cash: further reductions in employee headcount, reduction in base salaries to senior executives and employees, and other cost reduction measures. Assuming that the Company is successful in its plans and development efforts, the Company believes that it will be able to raise additional debt or equity capital. There is no guarantee that the Company will be able to raise such additional funds on acceptable terms, if at all.
These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that might be necessary should it be unable to continue as a going concern.
