ABB has launched a new EV charger which it says is capable of fully charging any electric car in 15 minutes or less.
The Terra 360, which has a maximum output of 360kW, is a modular charger which can simultaneously charge up to four vehicles.
It will be available in Europe from the end of 2021 and in the USA, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions during 2022.
Terra 360 chargers can be installed at petrol stations, convenience stores and retail locations as well as commercial premises.
They are fully customisable and there is also the option to include an integrated 27” advertisement screen to play video and pictures.
ABB high-power chargers are already being deployed around the world through the company’s partnerships with international charging operators such as Ionity and Electrify America.
Frank Muehlon, president of ABB’s E-mobility Division said, “With governments around the world writing public policy that favours electric vehicles and charging networks to combat climate change, the demand for EV charging infrastructure, especially charging stations that are fast, convenient and easy to operate is higher than ever.
“The Terra 360, with charging options that fit a variety of needs, is the key to fulfilling that demand and accelerating e-mobility adoption globally.”
Theodor Swedjemark, chief communications and sustainability officer at ABB added, “It’s an exciting day for ABB, who as the global leader in electric vehicle fast charging, is playing a key role in enabling a low carbon society.
“With road transport accounting for nearly a fifth of global CO2 emissions, e-mobility is critical to achieving the Paris climate goal. We will also lead by example by switching our entire fleet of more than 10,000 vehicles to non-emitting vehicles.”
