ABB has announced that its charging technology is now available in 95 percent of the worlds countries with an EV presence.

This includes countries from Australia to Azerbaijan and India to Iceland. According to an ABB press release, the company’s sales of DC fast chargers has now exceeded 6,500, ranging from 50kW up to 450kW and includes high-power chargers for both cars and buses.

Following 12 years of research and development, ABB offers an extensive range of internet-based charging products, part of the ABB Ability portfolio of connected solutions.

Supporting all global e-mobility charging standards, ABB chargers are designed to be highly durable, reliable, effective and long lasting, with in-built future proofing. Their modular construction ensures continued operation and the use of industry-grade components guarantee an extended lifetime and robust operation.

Frank Mühlon, Head of ABB’s Global Business for Electric Vehicle Charging, said: “The ABB team has extensive experience, working with all types of projects, from small en-route installations to innovative city-wide, on-demand electric bus charging systems. It’s this depth of knowledge and the ability to work closely with our customers that has enabled us to develop a range of future proof solutions for environmentally friendly transport systems across the globe.”

This commitment to innovation has culminated in two product launches in just the last two months; the Terra HP, which is the first 150-350 kW solution for electric cars, and ABB’s smart charging HVC solution for bus depots.

Ideally suited for use at highway rest stops and petrol stations, Terra HP’s ultra-high current design has the capacity to charge both 400 V and 800 V cars at full power. Meanwhile, the HVC-Overnight Charger offers a compact, single power cabinet paired with up to three charge boxes that can be upgraded from 50kW to 100kW or 150kW at any time.

Mühlon added, “Creating innovative state-of-the-art and energy efficient solutions, which are scalable to expand and flex with our customers’ needs, is at the heart of ABB’s philosophy. As the e-mobility market continues to expand we look forward to bringing sustainable mobility to even more people around the world.”
