New, innovative solution for ultra-fast charging electric vehicles
According to E.ON and Volkswagen Group Components, the new technology paves the way for a larger number of ultra-fast charging points to be installed where they are needed. E.ON is seeing demand for this solution from municipal utilities and local authorities as well as from filling stations and service areas. In addition, the offer is tailored to the electrification of retail parking lots and logistics companies such as parcel services.
To ensure that the battery installed in the charging station always has sufficient capacity, it is permanently fed by a conventional 16 to 63 ampere power connection.
Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Group Components, Thomas Schmall: The flexible ultra-fast charging station developed by us is an important component for a comprehensive network of charging points. At the same time, its innovative approach to quick and easy installation enables us to meet the needs of our customers. The cooperation with E.ON is an important step towards integrating this technology into the charging infrastructure quickly and in line with demand.
