Volkswagen gets ready to introduce mobile quick charging station for EVs

Author at TechGenyz Automobile
Volkswagen Mobile Charging Stations

Volkswagen prepares to set a new arduous vision to produce over 15 million vehicles on its new MEB platform in the first wave of its EV assault that will be achieving the target of investing 9 billion euros in the new VW I.D family by 2023.

The namesake brand will include 20 electric vehicles in its process by 2025, where there had been just two entries. To encourage and accelerate the embankment of the new EVs, Volkswagen is going to initiate the quick mobile charging stations.

The charging columns are rooted on the battery packs which is preferably used with the automaker’s MEB platform and can be set up in the areas like parking lots, at large events when required. The stations can also be removed after using it. VW mentions about the average time taken for the process would be 17 minutes including the battery holding capacity of 360 kilowatt-hours where each station is equipped to charge up to 15 electric vehicles. There is an option of charging four vehicles at the same time and the two with the DC quick charging connectivity whereas the other being linked with the AC connections. The charging stations can also cause depletion of energy storage and can also be swapped for receiving the new ones.

There is an instant opportunity to charge the devices that can also be used with the solar or wind energy which can provide with complete CO2 neutrality.

According to Thomas Schmall, the chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen Group, Components includes the charging of the mobile stations as the prominent step to produce an effective network of the charging stations and Volkswagen declares the efficiency of the temporary stations that will encourage the working of the charging infrastructure. The devices can also be used to reuse the batteries from the vehicles to power the stations. The Cities can also find the most efficient locations for the permanent charging point before making the prior investments which help in managing the network system.

It is expected to first appear in Wolfsburg, Germany as the part of the pilot project at the beginning of 2019. By 2020, it is expected to grow in other cities as well.
