VW, E.ON launch Drive Booster charger for EVs

Volkswagen and E.ON board members Thomas Schmall and Patrick Lammers launched the E.ON Drive Booster, a fast charger with its own storage battery, in Essen on Wednesday.

The flexible fast charger requires no civil engineering work or adjustments to the existing grid connection with a capacity allowing two electric vehicles (EV) to charge simultaneously with 150kw, allowing a range of 200 kilometers after 15 minutes of charging.

Both Schmall and Lammers touched on the importance of increased accessibility to charging stations for consumers to get on board with EVs and Lammers expressed optimism that the Drive Booster will "have an immediate and attractive offer for businesses and municipalities wanting to set up charging stations without spending a fortune."
