ABB launches the world’s fastest EV charger
ABB has launched the Terra 360, an all-in-one electric vehicle (EV) charger that says it’s the fastest charger of its kind on the market.
With the ability to charge up to four vehicles at once with dynamic power distribution, drivers don’t have to wait if somebody else is already ahead of them.
The new charger has a maximum output of 360 kW and is capable of fully charging an EV in 15 minutes or less, meeting the needs of a variety of EV users, whether they need a fast charge or to top their battery up while grocery shopping.
“With governments around the world writing public policy that favours EVs 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,” ABB president of the e-mobility division Frank Muehlon says.
“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.”
ABB chief communications and sustainability officer Theodor Swedjemark adds that it’s an exciting day for ABB who 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.”
Available in Europe from the end of 2021, and in the USA, Latin America and Asia Pacific regions in 2022, Terra 360 is designed with the daily needs and expectations of EV drivers in mind.
Its innovative lighting system guides the user through the charging process and shows the State of Charge (SoC) of the EV battery and the residual time before the end of an optimal charge session. The world’s fastest EV charger is also wheelchair accessible and features an ergonomic cable management system that helps drivers plug in quickly with minimal effort.
