High-Power Charging Along Major Highways in Europe

Joint Venture to deploy a high-powered DC charging network for battery electric vehicles (BEV) covering long-distance travel routes in Europe.

BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and Volkswagen Group with Audi & Porsche Plan a Joint Venture for Ultra-Fast, High-Power Charging Along Major Highways in Europe.


 

Joint Venture to deploy a high-powered DC charging network for battery electric vehicles (BEV) covering long-distance travel routes in Europe

 

Power levels up to 350 kW significantly reduce charging time compared to available systems

 

Build-up of about 400 ultra-fast charging sites planned in Europe

 

Network is based on the Combined Charging System (CCS) standard which uses a connector that is fully compatible with most current and next generations BEVs

BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company and Volkswagen Group with Audi and Porsche have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to create the highest-powered charging network in Europe. The goal is the quick build-up of a sizable number of stations in order to enable long-range travel for battery electric vehicle drivers. This will be an important step towards facilitating mass-market BEV adoption.

The projected ultra-fast high-powered charging network with power levels up to 350 kW will be significantly faster than the most powerful charging system deployed today. The build-up is planned to start in 2017. An initial target of about 400 sites in Europe is planned. By 2020 the customers should have access to thousands of high-powered charging points. The goal is to enable long-distance travel through open-network charging stations along highways and major thoroughfares, which has not been feasible for most BEV drivers to date. The charging experience is expected to evolve to be as convenient as refueling at conventional gas stations.

The network will be based on Combined Charging System (CCS) standard technology. The planned charging infrastructure expands the existing technical standard for AC- and DC charging of electric vehicles to the next level of capacity for DC fast charging with up to 350 kW. BEVs that are engineered to accept this full power of the charge stations can recharge brand-independently in a fraction of the time of today’s BEVs. The network is intended to serve all CCS equipped vehicles to facilitate the BEV adoption in Europe.


BMW Group

“This high-power charging network provides motorists with another strong argument to move towards electric mobility,” says Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG. “The BMW Group has initiated numerous public charging infrastructure projects over the last years. The joint project is another major milestone clearly demonstrating that competitors are combining forces to ramp-up e-mobility.”

Daimler AG

“The breakthrough of e-mobility requires two things: convincing vehicles and a comprehensive charging infrastructure. With our new brand EQ, we are launching our electric product offensive: by 2025, our portfolio will include more than ten fully electric passenger cars. Together with our partners, we are now installing the highest-powered charging infrastructure in Europe,” says Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. “The availability of high-power stations allows long-distance e-mobility for the first time and will convince more and more customers to opt for an electric vehicle.”

Ford Motor Company

“A reliable, ultra-fast charging infrastructure is important for mass consumer adoption and has the potential to transform the possibilities for electric driving,” says Mark Fields, president and CEO, Ford Motor Company. “Ford is committed to developing vehicles and technologies that make people’s lives better, and this charging network will make it easier and more practical for customers across Europe to own electrified vehicles.”

 

AUDI AG

“We intend to create a network that allows our customers on long-distance trips to use a coffee break for recharging,” says Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI AG. “Reliable fast charging services are a key factor for drivers to choose an electric vehicle. With this cooperation we want to boost a broader market adoption of e-mobility and speed up the shift towards emission-free driving.”

 

Porsche AG

“There are two decisive aspects for us: ultra-fast charging and placing the charging stations at the right positions,” says Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG. “Together, these two factors enable us to travel in an all-electrically powered car as in a conventional combustion engine vehicle. As automobile manufacturer, we actively shape our future, not only by developing all-electrically powered vehicles but by building up the necessary infrastructure as well.”

Lynrask, kraftig hurtiglading langs Europas motorveier.

BMW-gruppen, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company og Volkswagen-gruppen med Audi og Porsche planlegger et samarbeid for lynrask, kraftig hurtiglading langs Europas motorveier

Ford Motor Norge AS – 29-11-2016 10:00 CET

BMW-gruppen, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company og Volkswagen-konsernet med Audi og Porsche har signert en intensjonsavtale om å bygge det største nettverket av hurtigladestasjoner i Europa. Målet er en rask utbygging av et betydelig antall stasjoner som gjør det mulig å foreta lengre reiser i elektriske biler. Dette vil være et viktig skritt på veien mot et massemarked for elektriske biler.


Det prosjekterte, lynraske ladenettverket, med effektnivåer opp til 350 kW, vil tilby betydelig raskere lading enn dagens ladesystemer. Byggingen er planlagt å starte i 2017. Et første mål er å få ca. 400 ladestasjoner i Europa. Innen 2020 skal kundene ha tilgang til tusenvis av de kraftige ladestasjonene.

Målet er å gjøre langkjøring med elektriske biler mulig gjennom et åpent ladenettverk langs motorveier og store gjennomfartsårer. På sikt er målet at det skal være like praktisk å lade en el-bil som å fylle drivstoff på en bensinstasjon.

Nettverket skal bygges på standarden CCS (Combined Charging System). Den planlagte ladestrukturen skal utvikle den eksisterende standarden for AC- og DC-lading av el-biler til et forbedret nivå av DC hurtiglading opp til 350 kW. Elektriske biler som er bygget for å godta den fulle effekten kan – uavhengig av merke – lade til en brøkdel av den tiden det tar i dag. Nettverket er ment å betjene alle CCS-utstyrte biler for å lette introduksjonen av elektriske biler i Europa.

BMW-gruppen:

– Dette høyeffekt-ladenettet gir bilister et sterkt argument for å bevege seg mot elektrisk mobilitet, sier Harald Krügerm styreleder i BMW AG. – BMW-gruppen har satt i gang en rekke offentlige lade-infrastrukturprosjekter i løpet av de siste årene. Fellesprosjektet er en milepæl som demonstrerer at konkurrenter kombinerer sine krefter for å øke mobilitet med elektriske kjøretøy.

Daimler AG:

– For å få til et gjennombrudd for mobilitet med elektriske kjøretøy kreves det to ting: overbevisende biler og en omfattende ladeinfrastruktur. Med vårt nye varemerke EQ lanserer vi vår nye elektriske produktoffensiv. Innen 2025 skal vi ha mer enn 10 helelektriske personbiler tilgjengelig. Sammen med våre partnere lager vi nå den kraftigste ladeinfrastrukturen i Europa, sier Dr. Dieter Zetsche, styreformann i Daimer AG og sjef for Mercedes-Benz Cars. Tilgjengeligheten av kraftige ladestasjoner vil gjøre det mulig å kjøre langt med el-bil for første gang og vil overbevise nye kundegrupper om å velge en elektrisk bil.

Porsche AG:

– Det er to avgjørende aspekter for oss: lynrask lading og rett plassering av ladestasjonene, sier leder av styret i Porsche AG, Oliver Blume. – Sammen gjør disse to faktorene oss i stand til å reise i helelektriske biler på lik måte som i en bil med forbrenning motor. Som bilprodusent vil vi aktivt forme vår fremtid, ikke bare ved å utvikle helelektriske biler, men ved også å bygge opp den nødvendige infrastrukturen.

Audi AG:

– Vi ønsker å etablere et nettverk som gjør at våre kunder på lange turer skal kunne bruke en kaffestopp til å lade, sier Rupert Stadler, styreleder i Audi AG. – Pålitelige og raske ladetjenester er en nøkkelfaktor for å få sjåfører til å velge en elektrisk bil. Med dette samarbeidet ønsker vi å få en økt og bredere markedsadopsjon av mobilitet med elektriske biler og fremskynde skiftet til utslippsfri kjøring.

Ford Motor Company:

– En pålitelig og lynrask infrastruktur for lading er viktig for massemarkedets aksept og har potensiale til å forvandle muligheten for kjøring med elektriske biler, sier toppsjefen i Ford Motor Company, Mark Fields. – Ford har forpliktet seg til å utvikle kjøretøy og teknologier som gjør folks liv enklere. Dette ladenettverket vil gjøre det enklere og mer praktisk for kunder i hele Europa å eie en elektrisk bil.

Bilprodusentene planlegger betydelige investeringer for å etablere dette nettverket. Dette understreker også selskapenes tro på elektrisk mobilitet. Partnerne BMW Group, Daimler AG, Ford Motor Company og Volkswagen-gruppen vil være likeverdige i et joint venture samarbeid. Andre bilmerker vil også bli oppfordret til å delta i nettverket for å bidra til å etablere praktiske ladeløsninger for elektriske biler. Partnerne har også til hensikt å samarbeide med regionale partnere for å sikre at nettverket raskt blir en realitet.

The Man Who Thinks He Can

Dempsey’s attitude to racing is a true incarnation of the poem’s sentiment.

Thinking

If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win, but you think you can’t,
It is almost certain you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost;
For out of the world we find
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you’re outclassed, you are;
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win the prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man;
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the one who thinks he can!
