Walmart to Host Electrify America Fast Charging Stations

Walmart to Host Electrify America Fast Charging Stations

As the market shifts more and more toward electric vehicles, drivers will naturally need more places where they can charge up their batteries. In today's announcement, Electrify America said that this initiative will more than double the number of Walmart locations in the U.S. that offer EV charging stations.

As part of its settlement agreement with the USA government in relation to the diesel vehicle emissions scandal, Volkswagen was ordered to put $2 billion into the development of electric vehicle charging stations throughout the country. Walmart is the flawless partner for Electrify America to bring electric charging services to EV owners who value their time. The Terra HP, which can operate at powers of up to 350 kilowatts, is able to add nearly 200 miles (320 kilometers) of range to an EV in a time frame not much longer than needed to refuel a gas engine vehicle.

Electrify America plans to place chargers on highway routes at intervals of no more than 120 miles (195 kilometres).

When the full Volkswagen-backed network of chargers is complete, it will connect along the Interstate 80 corridor, which stretches from Teaneck, New Jersey, to San Francisco, and link 17 major metropolitan areas including Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Miami, New York City, Philadelphia, Portland, Raleigh, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. Volkswagen (VW) is working on their own supercharger-like network of fast-charging EV stations as well.

Uganda-President plans to ban oral-sex, because 'mouth is for eating'
Uganda's President Yoweri Museveni has said foreigners are trying to corrupt his people by convincing them to have oral sex. During the public speech, he said he wants to ban people from performing oral sex because "the mouth is for eating".

The chargers are claimed to recharge even the largest electric vehicle battery in under 15 minutes.

ABB (ABBN: SIX Swiss Ex) is a pioneering technology leader in electrification products, robotics and motion, industrial automation and power grids, serving customers in utilities, industry and transport & infrastructure globally. As such, Electrify America intends to invest $2 billion over the next ten years to bring more electric power to the people. Plus, it's in Nissan's and BMW's best interest to drum up sales of their EV offerings like the Leaf, i3 and other plug-in hybrid vehicles.

Exhausted of not being able to find a fast charging station near the stuff you need to buy?

Ideally suited for use at highway rest stops and petrol stations, Terra HP's ultra-high current has the capacity to charge both 400 V and 800 V cars at full power.
