World’s fastest EV charging station goes into service – in China

The electric bus charging station was jointly developed by Microvast and the China State Grid, and is used by a fleet of electric and plug-in hybrid buses.

 

Microvast, Inc. announced last month that what it calls the world’s first commercial ultrafast EV charging station began operations at the Chongqing International Airport New Development Zone in China. The electric bus charging station was jointly developed by Microvast and the China State Grid, and is used by a fleet of electric and plug-in hybrid buses powered by Microvast's Lithium Titanate Oxide batteries.

 

The charging station has six 400-kW chargers, each of which can fully charge a bus battery in 5 to 10 minutes. It’s the first of several planned for Chongqing as part of the city’s plan to deploy more than 1,000 EV buses. HT eBus Power Systems has delivered 125 buses so far this year.

“The Chongqing Fast Charge Technology is an important piece of Microvast’s innovative Clean City Transit Solution,” said Microvast CEO Wu Yang. “Our technology, evaluated and demonstrated over the last year in six prototype buses, is now ready for commercial operation in Chongqing.  The prototype buses have each driven more than 25,000 miles and we are confident in their continued performance.”
