Luxury car manufacturer Lotus has launched its own range of EV chargers including an ultra-fast 450 kW DC charger, power cabinet and a modular unit for charging up to four vehicles at once.
The range of EV charging solutions designed for businesses includes:
- Liquid-Cooled All-in-One DC Charger: a new charger, which offers ultra-fast charging of up to 450 kW. For example, with the Lotus Eletre R, it can add up to 88.5 miles or 142 km of range with about five minutes of charge. A 10% to 80% charge can be achieved in 20 minutes with a range extension of 74 miles or 120 kilometres from a five-minute charge when using a 350 kW Rapid Charger.
- Liquid-Cooled Power Cabinet: a modular power cabinet that is suited for spaces that require high energy in order to increase efficiency and minimise charging time, such as motorway rest stops. It offers power output capabilities of up to 480 kW.
- Liquid-Cooled Charging Unit: a charging terminal, which when used with the Liquid-Cooled Power Cabinet, can charge up to four vehicles at once. The unit has a maximum current output of 600 Amp.
Lotus’ fast-charging solutions have already been deployed in China and are expected to roll out across the majority of European countries and Middle East in the second quarter of 2024.
Mike Johnstone, Chief Commercial Officer at Lotus Group, said, “Over the past six years, Lotus has been investing in the technology and infrastructure to accelerate the transition to electrification.
“We want to make it easier than ever to own an electric vehicle and with our latest offerings, Lotus is able to provide customers with the confidence to access easy, fast, and efficient charging.”
