First three-phase charger that is small enough to be fitted in an electric car
Volvo testing C30 electric cars fully charged in 90 minutes
With a 30-min. recharge sufficient to drive 80 km/50 miles

Volvo 22 kW fast-charger to be installed and evaluated in several Volvo C30 Electric cars.

The new fast-charger will be evaluated in C30 Electric cars.

08 Nov. 2012: Volvo Car Corporation announced its testing of a new fast-charger for electric cars that operates six times faster than today's on-board devices, cutting recharging time to 1.5 hours when used with 400 Volt three-phase outlet with 32A, or 8 to 10 hours with an ordinary single-phase 230 V household outlet.

The Volvo says that the new 22 kW fast-charger will be installed and evaluated in several Volvo C30 Electric cars.

The Swedish premium car brand explains that the new 22 kW fast-charger is the world’s first charger that operates on three-phase supplies and is, in the same time, small enough to be fitted in an electric car, offering the driver two possibilities:

- Using a 400 Volt three-phase outlet with 32A gives an 80 km (50 miles) range in half an hour, or a full charge in an hour and a half,

- With an ordinary single-phase 230 V household outlet, the full charging time is 8 to 10 hours, depending on the available current.

Lennart Stegland, Vice President Electric Propulsion Systems at Volvo Car Corporation says that the fast-charging unit helps cure what is known as ‘range anxiety', since the car can be more easily recharged during the day, as the user can 'top up' the battery pack with electricity one or more times during the day, extending the total daily range significantly, with the same low operating cost compared to a car with a conventional power train.

Stegland adds that this can make electric cars more viable as a commercial proposition, in both the private and public sectors.
