German chancellor Angela Merkel and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto experienced ABB’s newest EV charging station at Hanover Fair. The two leaders, along with ABB CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer, were shown a demonstration of the company’s new high power fast charging solution: the Terra HP EV charging station with a power output of up to 350kW recharges a car battery in just eight minutes for 200km reach.
“This high-power fast charger provides electric vehicles with up to seven times more range in the same charging time than with previous models,” Spiesshofer said. “Together with our comprehensive ABB AbilityTM digital offering, we easily connect chargers to back offices, payment platforms or smart grid systems and offer our customers leading functionality.”
As a technology leader in sustainable electric mobility, ABB’s product portfolio includes charging technologies for electric cars, buses and trucks, as well as solutions for the electrification of ships, railways and cable ways. With more than 6,500DC fast charging stations installed in 60 countries, ABB is a global leader in DC fast charging. ABB’s e-mobility leadership is also demonstrated by its partnership with Formula E, the world’s first fully electric international FIA motorsport series.
