Shell on the verge of rolling fast electric car chargers in Europe

Author : Saipriya Iyer | Published Date : 2018-10-27 

Renowned Anglo-Dutch Shell has reportedly made it to the headlines for having announced that it plans on ramping up electric vehicle infrastructure. Authentic reports claim that company is now officially ready to install its first ultrafast charging points across western Europe.

As per sources familiar with the knowledge of the matter, these charging points will be situated at 80 locations across Europe. One of the known locations that tabloids have been able to detect is at a   motorway service station, just outside of Paris. Approximately eight charging stations have been planned for installation across the United Kingdom, as the company works on its target of making swift charging easily available by the year 2020.

Reliable reports affirm that the new points are capable enough to add 150 km of range to car batteries in a mere duration of five minutes, while being fully capable of recharging the latest models in close to 10 minutes – apparently three times faster as opposed to some of the best chargers available in the market.

As per authentic sources, Porsche’s Taycan will most plausibly be one of the pilot models that would be entirely capable of taking the advantage of these faster charging speeds that are expected to considerably eliminate the time required for recharging. Incidentally, Taycan will foray into the commercial market by 2019.

Experts vouch for the fact that lately, there has been an increase in the number of oil companies that have depicted quite an appreciable interest to trace their way in the electric car market. Indeed, Shell has recently purchased New Motion, the Dutch charging firm, French magnate total entered into a partnership with ChargePoint, in order to sell chargers to businesses across the UK, while BP made an acquisition offer worth GBP 130 million for UK’s largest network.

Shell’s chargers are apparently so powerful, that no car that is presently being sold in the market is capable of utilizing them to the fullest capacity. The current crop of EVs can use these at a slower rate, claim sources.
