New Hitachi ABB grid-to-plug EV charging system

Hitachi ABB Power Grids has launched a new grid-to-plug EV charging system, Grid-eMotion, that it says offers a step-change approach for public transport operators. The new solution enables operators to efficiently scale up operations.

The company has been active in EV charging solutions since 2013, when it introduced flash-charging eBus solutions in Geneva and Nantes. Through close collaboration with operators, Hitachi ABB Power Grids says it has now identified a market need for a more holistic approach to large-scale charging. 

“The Grid-eMotion Fleet launch is a game-changer for anyone managing public transport and commercial EV fleets,” says Niklas Persson, managing director, Grid Integration business unit, Hitachi ABB Power Grids. “Grid-eMotion Fleet delivers unprecedented scalability, space savings and operational efficiency. 

The solution will accelerate the global uptake of safe, sustainable and smart mobility, whilst contributing to cleaner air and an enhanced quality of life for today’s generation and those to come.”
