ABB launches 360kW EV charger

ABB Terra 360

ABB has launched the Terra 360, a 360kW electric vehicle (EV) charger.

The company claims the new device is the “world’s fastest” electric car charger.

It can deliver 62 miles of range in less than three minutes and can charge up to four vehicles at once.

“With governments around the world writing public policy that favors electric vehicles 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,” said Frank Muehlon, president of ABB’s E-mobility Division. “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.”

Available in Europe from the end of 2021, ABB says the Terra 360 is designed with the daily needs and expectations of EV drivers in mind.

Its 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.

As well as serving the needs of private EV drivers at fueling stations, convenience stores and retail locations, ABB expects the Terra 360 chargers to be installed at commercial premises to charge electric fleet cars, vans and trucks.

The devices are fully customisable and can be branded. There is also the option to include an integrated 27-inch advertisement screen to play video and pictures.

ABB has sold more than 460,000 electric vehicle chargers across more than 88 markets since 2010.

You can find out more about implementing EV infrastructure at this year's Fleet & Mobility Live Event, which takes place at the Birmingham NEC on October 5-6.
