CCSplus aims to deliver 100 km of range in 3-5 minutes


Long charging times represent one of the most commonly-cited barriers to widespread EV adoption, and with ranges getting longer, the need for faster charging becomes even more pressing.

Pennsylvania-based Phoenix Contact plans to demonstrate its CCSplus fast charging system at the upcoming North American International Auto Show.

CCSplus builds on the established CCS charging standard, adding a cooling system that is integrated into the charging station. An intelligent controller ensures that cooling is only switched on when required. Phoenix Contact claims that this system will eventually be able to add 100 km of range in only 3-5 minutes.


At the 2016 Hanover Fair, President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited the Phoenix Contact booth to check out the new technology, and discussed the future of EV charging with company execs.
