Siemens eMobility’s new electric vehicle charger, VersiCharge Blue, is currently in full production at the company’s Carrollton, Texas manufacturing facility, and is now going into commercial deployment. The Level 2 AC charger is designed for all applications, including commercial sites, parking garages and light- to medium-duty fleets.
The VersiCharge Blue charger offers up to 11.5 kW of power, and is EnergyStar Certified. It comes with a 25-foot cable and a five-year warranty. It is fully Buy American compliant to meet federal EV infrastructure funding requirements, and can easily be purchased under government contracts such as GSA, GSA-BPA and Sourcewell.
“Getting our Carrollton facility fully operational in just a few months, and VersiCharge Blue already coming off the production line, demonstrates our ability to quickly and efficiently scale to meet market demand,” said John DeBoer, head of Siemens eMobility, North America. “With this expansion, we are further advancing our goal to deploy 1 million EV chargers for the US market.”
Siemens eMobility continues to expand its US manufacturing footprint. This fall, it will open a clean room at its Carrollton facility for the manufacture of high-tech electronic assemblies for EVs. In Wendell, North Carolina, Siemens manufactures the company’s DC charger for eBus and eTruck depot charging, SICHARGE UC, and has developed an apprenticeship, internship and training program to prepare the EV workforce. The company also continues to test and explore EV technology at its 600-person R&D hub in Peachtree Corners, Georgia.
