The Mahle technology group is expanding its intelligent charging solutions for electric cars with the newly introduced chargeBIG Power charging management system. The nearly 1,000 chargeBIG fast charging points have been installed for long-term parking with outputs of up to 750 kW. Mahle says its chargeBIG Power is built on the principle that a charging management system can be economically integrated into the existing infrastructure; particularly on long-distance routes, where there is still a lack of fast-charging options.
Thanks to the intelligent control of the load distribution in the power grid, Mahle says the charging system enables as many electric vehicles as possible to be charged from the available power supply at the same time. The user can order the charging capacity that fits the electric vehicle and travel plan.
