The world’s fastest charger can charge four vehicles at once and may be coming to a gas station or convenience store near you as soon as 2022.
Electric vehicles have come a long way since the early 2000s, and with the launch of Terra 360, global tech company ABB wants to show that so has EV charging. This latest addition to the company’s fast charging technology advancements can fully charge a battery in 15 minutes or less and service up to four vehicles at once. Its design is reminiscent of traditional gas station pumps — a conscious choice on ABB’s part as the company continues its mission to find ways to make electric vehicles more attractive to the public.
To date, two of the top reasons people are still hesitant about electric cars are that charging a battery at home takes hours and public charging stations aren’t widely available yet. ABB’s goal is to address both of these issues by rolling out Terra 360s to gas stations, convenience stores, and retail locations across the world. The Swiss company is starting in Europe this year and aiming to hit the U.S., Latin American, and Asia Pacific regions in 2022.
