Bosch Automotive Service Solutions has introduced the Power DCPlus DC fast charger to North America. The new commercial charger uses the SAE Combo standard, and is ChargePoint network-enabled. It can be installed indoors or outdoors, in wall- or pedestal-mount configurations, and weighs less than 150 pounds.
Bosch sees the 24 kW Bosch Power DCPlus as a physically smaller alternative to larger and more expensive 50 kW charging stations. It can charge compatible EVs to 80% in less than 30 minutes – still much faster than a Level 2 charging station.
The Bosch Power DCPlus requires a 480 V 3-phase input. Prices start under $10,000.
