EV charging stations needn’t be just functional – some say they can be objects of beauty, and even masterpieces of design (did anyone ever feel that way about gas pumps?). Brisbane-based company Tritium has won the 2014 Good Design Australia Award in the Automotive and Transport category for its Veefil Electric Vehicle Fast Charger.
The slim, curvaceous charger is available in a variety of bright colors. But Veefil isn’t designed for looks alone. Its slimline form factor gives it an extra-small footprint and light weight, which Tritium says will enable it to be installed in many more locations than other chargers. It’s also liquid-cooled in order to withstand extreme weather conditions.
“Our intention in developing Veefil was to produce not only the most technologically-advanced fast charger for the EV market, but one that was easy to install, easy to use and easy to own,” explains Tritium Managing Director David Finn. “The size, design and visual appearance of the unit were important aspects of the product’s development and I am delighted this was recognized by the judging panel, in what was an extremely competitive award.”
