New 15-minute EV charge point for fleets
ABB has unveiled a new electric vehicle charge point capable of fully charging any electric car in 15 minutes or less, making it ideal for depot-based fleets.
The Terra 360 is a 360kW charger, which can simultaneously charge up to four vehicles.
Frank Muehlon, President of ABB’s E-mobility Division, said: “With governments around the world writing public policy that favors electric vehicles and charging networks to combat climate change, the demand for EV charging infrastructure, especially charging stations that are fast, convenient and easy to operate is higher than ever.”
A screen on the Terra 360 displays the state of charge of the EV battery and the time remaining before the end of an optimal charge session.
ABB sees potential for the charger as a solution to workplace charging, as well as for public recharging stations. The Terra 360 will be available in Europe from the end of 2021, and in the USA, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions next year.
ABB is in the process of switching its own 10,000 vehicles to zero emission models by 2030.
