Volkswagen Group Components, a subsidiary of Volkswagen AG (Xetra: VW), has collaborated with Germany-based E ON to develop a prototype flexible ultra-fast charging station that will be presented in Essen, Germany.

Both firms stated that the establishment of a dense public network of ultra-fast e-vehicle charging stations can be realised much faster than earlier assumed.

The project aimed at integrating a battery system, which will make it possible to install ultra-fast charging stations almost anywhere and at a significantly lower cost without civil engineering or mains connection. The stations are installed according to the plug & play principle. The quick charging system can charge two e-cars with up to 150 kilowatts of power at the same time, which is said to provide an additional range of around 200km on average in just 15 minutes.
