Swiss electronics giant ABB will launch what it claims is the world’s fastest EV charger at the upcoming Cenex Low Carbon Vehicle Event at Millbrook, Bedfordshire, UK.
The Terra HPC (High Power Charger) can add 124 miles to a vehicle’s range in only 8 minutes. The company initially developed it for Electrify America, which is building a network of 2,800 fast chargers across the US. EA is now deploying the Terra HPC at hundreds of charging stations in metro areas and along highways.
Also at the LCV show, ABB will exhibit its new EVLunic AC wallbox portfolio, which is comprised of 52 different types of chargers for private and business use. The compact wallbox (50 by 25 cm) is designed to be installed at homes or offices.
ABB has installed around 8,000 connected DC fast charging stations in 68 countries, including 1,000 DC Terra HPCs.
“ABB believes that charging is the new refueling with the world’s fastest charger, the Terra HPC,” said ABB Product Marketing Director David Lowen. “In our mission to power the e-mobility revolution, we have developed a wide range of charging solutions to suit all types of drivers and fleets.”
