Zurich-headquartered multinational technology firm ABB has launched its own full 350 kW electric vehicle (EV) charging system -- ‘Terra HP’ -- this week. The company claims that the new technology which it has unveiled can add 200 km of range for an EV in barely 8 minutes of charging.

In connection with the launch of the Terra HP charging system, Frank Muehlon -- Chief of ABB’s Global Business for EV Charging -- said that the key component of the ABB philosophy is: “Creating innovative state-of-the-art and energy efficient solutions which are scalable to expand and flex with our customers’ needs.”
