COMFORTDELGRO INTRODUCES FASTEST DC FAST CHARGER FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLES IN SINGAPORE
29 June 2020 – Direct Current (DC) fast charging for electric vehicles (EV) just got faster!
ComfortDelGro, which introduced the first commercial Direct Current (DC) fast charging service in Singapore in January 2019, will roll out an even faster one for cabbies and EV owners from 1 July 2020.
At 100kW power output, the Delta Ultra Fast Charger is Singapore’s fastest public commercial DC charger. It boasts double the power output of all other commercial DC charging stations in the market, and is able to shave close to 10 minutes off the time it takes to fully charge a vehicle. The charging station, which is located in ComfortDelGroEngineering’s Loyang branch, can charge up to two vehicles at any one time. If two EVs are being charged at the same time, the charging station’s power output is at least 50kW, enabling each EV to be fully charged in 30 minutes.
The superfast service will be made available to all ComfortDelGro fully electric taxis and private EV car owners through global EV charging software and solutions provider, Greenlots.
Greenlots users who own EVs equipped with the Combined Charging System (CCS) such as the BMW i3, fully-electric Hyundai Ioniqs and Konas, Jaguar iPace as well as Porsche Taycan will be able to recharge at the Delta Ultra Fast charging station through the Greenlots App, where they can check the availability of the charger and pay the charges of 40 cents per kWh – the lowest in the market – through the App. To gain entry into ComfortDelGro’spremises at Braddell and Loyang, drivers will need to apply for a special access pass directly
with ComfortDelGro Engineering1. ComfortDelGro cabbies driving the fully-electric Hyundai Ioniq and Kona taxis do not require the access pass.
