ABC Companies launches N.A. electric bus charging facility

The 3.5-acre electric facility is equipped to charge up to 40 buses with 20 dual-cable EV charging dispensers.

ABC Companies and Proterra Inc announced the official opening of an electric bus charging facility in North America.

Located on a 3.5-acre campus in Newark, California, the facility is equipped to charge up to 40 electric buses with 20 dual-cable EV charging dispensers and can support up to 1.4 megawatts of EV charging power. The facility enables enhanced service, delivery, training and support for the growing number of Van Hool 100% electric buses, which are powered by Proterra’s battery technology.

“As the largest passenger bush and minibus dealer in North America, we are going beyond selling and supporting these vehicles, as we educate, demonstrate, and invest in zero emissions commercial transportation, to accelerate EV adoption. In under 2 years, over 20% of our bus sales are now battery-electric vehicles,” Roman Cornell, CEO of ABC Companies, said.

At Auto China 2024, CATL unveiled Shenxing Plus—an LFP battery that achieves a range above 1,000 km. (approx. 621 miles) with 4C superfast charging. CATL said the cathode of Shenxing Plus is made with a granular gradation technology, which places every nanometer particle in a position to achieve ultra-high compact density. The company adds its proprietary 3D honeycomb-shaped material to the anode, which it said boosts the energy density while effectively controlling the volume expansion during charge and discharge cycles. According to CATL, the single-piece casing also optimizes the internal space utilization, allowing the Shenxing Plus cells to reach a high energy density level. At the system level, the company said its Shenxing Plus battery pack has a topological structure optimized on top of module-free CTP 3.0 technology, enhancing the packing efficiency by 7%. The Shenxing battery system's energy density surpasses the 200 Wh/kg threshold for the first time, reaching 205 Wh/kg, making ranges over 1,000 kilometers a reality.
