Prysmian Group has joined the Charging Interface Initiative, or CharIn, the industry group supporting, through standardization, a super-fast charging infrastructure that allows electric vehicle (EV) drivers to easily and quickly recharge on the road during long-distance trips.
Consumers want to feel reassured that charging stations are as easy to find and use as gas pumps. The automotive industry and CharIn, therefore, have stepped up to back the European “Combined Charging System” (CCS) as the global standard for charging electric powered vehicles. Ultra-fast CCS-standard charging enables EVs to replenish for up to 400 km of range in only 15 minutes with powers ranging from 150 kW to 350 kW.
With CCS, drivers of any type of electric vehicle can choose between normal and fast charging as well as AC and DC. They only need a single system for all these options.
