The Swiss built 3in1 fast charging station supports the three major fast-charge standards: DC CHAdeMO, DC Combined Charging system and AC Type 2 Mode 3. It is a comprehensive and user-friendly solution for places with high traffic such as motorway service stations, shopping centers, car parks and business parking lots.
Offering these standards ensures compatibility to all current and future electric cars. Depending on model, the station serves up to three cars simultaneously and provides each car with a range of 3 km per minute charging time.
Alpiq E-Mobility will showcase the new charging station as the first of its kind. The 3-in-1 fast-charging station was developed by Swiss firm EVTEC and is the first station to be compatible with every model of electric vehicle, thanks to the various plug types with which it is equipped. This innovative new model rounds off the Alpiq range of charging stations.
At the moment, electric vehicles in Europe are equipped with three different plug systems. The "ChaDeMo" system is generally used in Switzerland. German vehicle manufactures will launch vehicles equipped with the combo system in autumn 2013, while French electric vehicles are equipped with the type-2 plug. The new charging station supports all of these systems.
With this innovation, owners of electric vehicles receive the certainty that they will be able to charge their vehicles at all of the EVite fast-charging stations. The EVite project aims to establish a comprehensive network of fast-charging stations across Switzerland that are compatible with every model of electric vehicle. Alpiq is a partner and founding member of this initiative.
