Mahle chargeBIG becomes independent of Mahle group

Mahle chargeBIG, a former corporate start-up, is now an independent subsidiary of the Mahle group. This will accelerate the automotive supplier’s transformation into a provider of sustainable mobility solutions and will also give the chargeBIG team greater operational freedom, the company says. Mahle says since entering the market in 2018, around 1,500 charging points have been sold to over 20 customers. In addition, chargeBIG has concluded a development cooperation with power electronics specialist PRETTL Electronics Automotive to accelerate the market launch of its recently unveiled fast-charging solution chargeBIG Power.

With chargeBIG Power, the company will offer a DC fast-charging solution with charging power of up to 750 kW, based on the chargeBIG principle of intelligent load management. The fast-charging solution is suitable for charging parks with up to 20 charging points—even with limited grid connection. It can be economically integrated into the existing grid infrastructure. This solution is intended particularly for long-distance routes, where there is still a lack of fast-charging options today. In this way, Mahle says it aims to expedite the electrification of individual and commercial traffic.

The basic chargeBIG concept for AC charging is suitable for fleets and applications with around 20 to 100, or even more, electrified parking spaces, the company says. This solution is particularly suitable for parking spaces where electric vehicles are parked for longer periods, such as at airports, office locations, or apartment blocks. chargeBIG offers turnkey centralized solutions for different charging requirements. Charging power of up to 7.2 kW is used in most cases, but charging points delivering an output of up to 22 kW can also be integrated.
