- ABB E-mobility has sold more than one million EV chargers globally across its AC and DC charging portfolio
- Continued growth facilitated by doubling of production capacity following launch of new DC fast charger facility in Valdarno, Italy
- Milestone underscores ABB E-mobility’s commitment to enabling an electrified, emission-free mobility future
ABB E-mobility has announced the delivery of its one millionth electric vehicle charger, the latest milestone in the company’s ongoing mission to enable an emission-free future through smart and reliable EV charging solutions.
With a presence in more than 85 markets, the launch of ABB E-mobility’s new $30 million, 16,000m2 production facility in Valdarno, Italy in 2022, completed a doubling of the company’s production capacity over the last two years. The cutting-edge manufacturing site set a new benchmark for the sector, producing one DC fast charger every 20 minutes thanks to its seven production lines and enabling the company to continue the exceptional growth it has enjoyed in recent years.
In addition to its Valdarno facility, ABB E-mobility has continued its expansion globally. Earlier this month the company announced the commencement of manufacturing at its new production facility in the United States – set to produce up to 10,000 chargers annually for public charging, school busses and fleets. 2022 also saw a significant increase in ABB E-mobility’s stake in major Chinese charging provider, Chargedot.
Speaking on the announcement, ABB E-mobility CEO, Frank Mühlon, said: “From the production of the EU’s first 50kW charger in 2010 to the launch of the Terra 360, which is capable of delivering 100km of range in less than three minutes, ABB E-mobility has long sought to develop the innovations necessary to create an emission-free mobility future.
“While our continual investment in research and development shows our ongoing commitment to enhance the field of e-mobility, it is the global delivery of these solutions at scale which is integral to the realization of our goals. I would like to thank our customers globally for their continued collaboration in hitting this one millionth charger milestone. I look forward to the millions yet to come, and to the cleaner, greener world they will help create.”
“ABB E-mobility Canada is very proud to have contributed to this significant milestone with our long standing support of the transit, fleet, and public charging markets in Canada utilizing our industry leading DC Fast Chargers.” Added John Ieraci, Director of ABB E-mobility in Canada. “We look forward to further contribute to residential and commercial EV infrastructure roll outs with our soon to be introduced AC chargers and are committed to continue working with industry, government and all other stakeholders for the continued adoption of EV in Canada.”John Ieraci, Director of ABB E-mobility in Canada
Children are already driving the EV revolution, despite not yet being able to get behind the wheel themselves, a new global survey has found. Conducted by world leader in EV charging solutions, ABB E-mobility, the survey revealed that children not only educate their parents on environmental issues and admonish them for un-eco-friendly behavior, but also contribute to discussions around major purchases such as electric vehicles.
The study, comprised of 2,500 parents (with children aged 8-16) and 2,500 children (aged 8-16), involved participants from the 10 largest markets; Canada, China, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and USA.
Its key findings, released on World EV Day, demonstrate the crucial role that the next generation has to play in helping reduce emissions and enable a more sustainable future.
