The flexible quick charging station can be installed almost anywhere and charge all kinds of electric vehicles
The flexible quick charging station has a charging capacity of up to 360 kWh, and supports a charging capacity of 100 kW. When the energy content of the battery built into the charging station falls below a defined value, the depleted charging station is simply replaced by a charged one. By contrast, when it is permanently connected to the mains power grid, the battery pack continuously and independently recharges itself.
Technically, the charging station is based on the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Electric Drive Matrix (MEB) and is designed to use its cell modules. Apart from the benefit of being scaled up to different capacity levels, the charging station will provide a second life for batteries from electric vehicles. After all, batteries are replaced when they lose their capacity to hold a charge over time and fall below a defined reduced residual capacity. If they then pass a detailed analysis, they can be recycled in a flexible quick charging station and thus reused, reducing the use of valuable raw materials in the long term.
