In cooperation with the Danish company CLEVER, which supplies charging solutions for electric vehicles, Danish architects COBE is presenting its design for a modular system of ultra-fast charging stations. The first of the new charging stations opens in Fredericia, Denmark, in summer 2018. The idea is to let drivers take a meaningful break during their journey.
In future, electricity will replace petrol and diesel as the fuel for our cars. However, while it takes approx. five minutes to fill up your car with petrol, charging an electric vehicle today is a more time-consuming exercise which can easily take 45 minutes. People today lead busy lives, and every minute counts. Therefore, the charging station of the future should not only minimize the charging time, but also create a meaningful break for the driver.
