VW’s Electrify America selects four suppliers to build EV charging stations for its massive network
In a recent announcement, German automaker Volkswagen (VW)’s Electrify America firm has revealed that it has selected four suppliers for the construction of four different ultra-fast charging stations for its massive electric vehicle (EV) charging network in the US. The company has efforts underway to deploy a massive EV charging network in the US in the coming years.
Electrify America is a company which resulted from Volkswagen’s $2 billion settlements with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) after the infamous diesel-emissions cheating scandal.
According to Electrify America’s recent announcement, four suppliers which have been selected by the company for building ultra-fast EV charging stations are: ABB, BTC Power, Signet, and Efacec. All these four companies are already reputed hardware suppliers for existing EV charging networks. The installation of the company’s ‘ultra-fast’ EV charging stations will begin this spring.
The massive EV charging network which Electrify America will deploy in the US essentially includes the plan for a ‘nationwide 150 kW+ fast charging network.’ In addition, the company also has some other ‘EV charging station installation’ plans, including a plan for California under which it will install ultra-fast 320 kW chargers.
Moreover, Electrify America has also revealed that it plans to install a total of ‘2,800 charging stations’ at apartments and workplaces across the country.
