ABB E-mobility and Shell announced their collaboration will launch the first nationwide network of more than 200 Terra 360s chargers across Germany in the next 12 months.

An all-in-one electric car charger, the Terra 360 can deliver 100 km of driving range in less than three minutes and fully charge the vehicle in 15 minutes or less.

The Shell Recharge network, powered by 100-percent renewable electricity, will help to meet growing German demand for EV charging infrastructure, both from consumers and fleets, and further accelerate future e-mobility adoption across the country, according to a joint statement by ABB and Shell.

“For drivers on the go, particularly those on long journeys, charging speed is key and every minute waiting can make a big difference to their journey,” commented István Kapitány, Shell Mobility global executive vice president.” For fleet owners, speed is important for top-up charging during the day that keeps EV fleets moving.”

Available in different configurations, the Terra 360 can charge multiple vehicles simultaneously. The new charger offers a maximum output of 360 kW.

ABB E-mobility recently signed a global framework agreement with Shell to supply ABB’s end-to-end portfolio of AC and DC charging stations. The portfolio ranges from the AC wall box for home, work or retail installations to the Terra 360 for refueling stations, urban charging stations, retail parking and fleet applications.
